Young Harris Youth Arts

Young Harris Youth Arts A unique group of individuals coming together to do cool creative stuff! Like photography, animation, short films, printmaking, drawing and constructing!

Youth arts group (ages 12-16) based at the Harris Museum, Art Gallery & Library, Preston (Lancashire). Be the envy of all your mates! Base yourself here once a month on Saturday 1-3pm and cultivate your creativity and coolness! Meet new friends and be as arty as you like! We aren't like school and we try to make our own decisions about what we do (rather than being told!). Makes a change eh?
