BUDDING young artists enjoyed a morning of drawing and painting at the Pocklington Arts Centre.

A children’s art class, called ‘Matisse - The Dream’, was held at the venue for children aged five and over.

Nine children attended the art workshop where they created their own version of artist Henri Matisse’s colourful painting called, The Dream.

Helen Steele, who organised the class, said: “There were quite a wide range of age groups. They all had a fantastic time.

“One boy had turned 10 years old and came as a birthday treat.”

The next art class for children at the arts centre will be held on Saturday, 7 April and will involve making Easter-related artwork.
