Arty and Creative Activities
If you’re a creative or musical person how about putting your talents to good use by joining a local drama group or band? These types of groups are always on the look out for fresh talent. Alternatively, if drawing or painting is your speciality how about joining a local art club?
During holiday periods creative summer schools, activities or workshops are held in community settings such as libraries, museums and community centres. It might be that during term time your school runs this sort of activities at lunchtime or after school.
How about learning a foreign language? Being able to speak a second language is a really useful skill especially if you plan to travel widely or work abroad. If you’re over 16 you could take an adult education class. It’s possible to take this type of class in anything from archaeology to Spanish. Some of these courses lead to a recognised qualification but others are purely for pleasure.
It’s not always that easy to find something that looks interesting enough to make you want to get off the sofa. But the more open minded and willing to give new things a try you are the more likely it is that you’ll find something worth pursuing. So why not have a look and see exactly what’s on offer?
