School Holiday Programme 2021

October Holidays at Aratoi

These holidays, Aratoi is thinking all about faces!

We have three fun activities to keep you and your family busy. All our activities are free with no need to book.


Portrait Me

Saturday 9th October 11am -2pm, Main Gallery

Sketch artist Antonette Sail, will be in residence in the Main Gallery on Saturday 9th October. She will be creating fun quick sketches of you in our purpose made portrait stage area. What kind of portrait would you like? Abstract? Cartoon? Serious? Funny? Use the props to show us something about you, your personality and your hobbies.


Mask Makeover

Tuesdays and Thursdays in the holidays, 11am - 2pm, Aratoi Foyer

A fun drop in foyer activity for everyone. We all know masks are really important right now but they do look really BORING, jazz up our masks with fun materials, pompoms, sequins, string, all sorts!


Art Discovery Cards

Tuesday - Sunday, 10am - 4pm, Main Gallery

Hunt out our 10 Art Discovery Cards over the Eye to Eye: Portraits from the Collection exhibition. Each Discovery Card offers a different challenge to look closer at the work on show and see it in a new light. Can you complete them all?
