ART:JAM creative activities for children and grown-ups

At the ART:JAM Art & Craft Market on Saturday 12th September 11am-4.30pm there will be free creative activities for children, based on recycling, up-cycling and repurposing materials to make something new, led by volunteer local artists. You’ll find these on the stage of the hall at Inverkeithing Civic Centre. 

The wonderful Ann’s Doodles will also be providing colouring sheets of her beautiful intricate drawings for members of the public to have a go at colouring themselves. Colouring sheets and pencils and pens will be available at the children’s creative activities area on the stage.

There will also be a special table for grown ups to have a go at colouring, with Ann on hand to give expert hints and tips. Be warned – mindful colouring is so enjoyable it becomes difficult to stop!
