SCORES of youngsters have had a wail of a time during the half term break.

Travis Travell, aged five, got to stroke a cute piglet from Mill Cottage Farm Experience during a visit to Garsons Garden Centre, in Titchfield.

Meanwhile, children have been getting creative at the Aspex Gallery in Gunwharf Quays.

Budding artists have been learning how to use stop-frame animation with drawings of trees, birds and Superman.

Children have also been making images with rollers and collages, paintings and drawings from photographs they took of each other.

The activities have been run as part of the Half Term Holiday Art Club, which began on Wednesday.

Louise Bush, 28, project co-ordinator, said: ‘It’s been great introducing the children to lots of artistic techniques which they wouldn’t necessarily learn inside the classroom.

‘The response from everyone has been brilliant.’
