A group of artists in the Rottingdean area are giving up some of their time during the summer months to help children learn artistic skills.

Based at the Open Art Gallery and Cafe in Neville Rd, the Group aim is to help children with such things as painting and mosaics. Parents will also be welcome to join in.

One of the artists Amie Harman said the aim is to give children something constructive to do in which they will learn as well as having fun.

To make enquiries about the scheme, parents should phone the cafe on 07826074610. Alternatively the Cafe has a Website: www.openartgallerycafe.co.uk
