About This Event

Whilst our venues are closed at the FAC, we would love you to create with Hot Arts for Cool Kids at Home!

Then download our free Hot Arts for Cool Kids Colouring Book and fill it with all your favourite colours! We also have an online video tutorial with lots of tips on How to draw faces.
