Youngunz…it’s back!!

              Youngunz…it’s back.

The Purple Thistle Centre will be holding space for their infamous Youngunz Program between January 26th to June 22th, 2014.

 If you are between the ages of 10 – 14 (ish) or know anyone who is in that age group who would like to hang out once a week for a couple hours to make, break, learn, forget and create a smattering of arty projects, this may be right up your alley!

 Youngunz is a weekly 2 hour workshop (some may be longer, ie full days*) aiming to match the groups interests with clever mentors from the art world who are excited to share their passion and skills with us. This is not a drop in program and due to space limitations a maximum of 12 people will be admitted…however, a waitlist can be created if need be.

We will host a coffee house to exhibit the amazing work these younguns produce (date TBA)
