Winter arts at The Depozitory

Families heading on an Isle of Wight holiday over the coming months might like to head along to The Depozitory at Quay Arts, which will be hosting a special Valentine's art show.

Starting on February 9th, the Isle of Wight County Press reports the show will include a workshop on the woven willow heart led by artist Tim Johnson and will also feature sessions designed to help fathers and sons bond.

A number of workshops aimed at kids will also be running over the February half-term, including toy making with Tim Johnson and a street dance camp.

The camp is being offered by organiser Lyndsey Byrne and is open to 13 to 18-year-olds. It will aim to teach them some of the techniques seen in today's modern dance videos and will culminate in the youngsters taking part in a street dance finale.

All workshops will be held from 10:00 until 14:30 GMT and all those interested are being urged to contact Quay Arts for availability.

Adults hoping to get in on the action might also like to sign up for a drawing course that is being run by local artist Hilary Thorpe. Aimed at beginners, she will guide budding art enthusiasts through the basics of composition and drawing, helping them to develop a skill that could entertain them for years to come.

Visitors to the Isle of Wight in March might also like to check out a night of musical entertainment that is being held at the Quay Arts Cafe on the 1st of the month.

Israeli-born musician Gilad Atzmon will be performing on the night, with the artist well known for his energetic live shows and innovative approach to traditional forms of jazz.

Kicking off at 20:00 GMT, tickets are available for £11-13 and doors will open from 18:30.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801529141-ADNFCR
