Aspex releases free bursary spaces for their 2019 summer Holiday Art Clubs

We are pleased to offer free bursary spaces for all Holiday Art Clubs taking place this summer! 

Holiday Art Clubs are day-long sessions which see children aged 8 - 12 years working alongside an artist, completing creative activities and building new skills.

These bursary places are particularly targeted at children from Refugee and Asylum seeker families, Young Carers, Children in Care and families with Portsmouth Leisure Cards. 

Bursary places are available on each of the above below:
