Another fantastic York House Arts for All took place on Saturday 12 October with hundreds of families joining us at York House Centre for an art-tastic experience…
Local artists, Michelle Buckland and Angela Carel, transformed York House into Outer Space with a universe backdrop of moon, stars, planets, satellites and spaceships. There were a wide range of arty activities based around the theme – loads of weird and wonderful aliens to colour-in and paint; postcards from Space; bunting to decorate and hang up on the washing line around the hall; paper marbling; planet making, the very popular ‘paint a moon rock’; make a Space plate scene; icing rocket biscuits; face-painting, design your own shooting star t-shirt and loads more to make and do…. The creativity flowed from people of all ages – from tiny tots to those more advancing in years – and a fabulous time was had by all.
We are grateful to Stony Stratford Town Council, Milton Keynes Community Foundation and the York House Centre Local Giving Fund for their generous funding. Added to the money raised via the Volunteer Cafe, paid activities and bucket donations, this allows these events to be FREE for everyone (including materials) every year, giving the opportunity to all families to play and create together.
A massive thank you to all our Volunteers (the York House Arts Crew) who give so freely of their time to help everyone enjoy the day, and to everyone who baked cakes and ran the Volunteer Cafe to keep the masses fed and watered!
