CHILDREN will be able to learn art skills and get a qualification at a course in the Essex Police Museum.

The weekly classes starting at 5pm on Tuesday January 28 will allow youngsters aged between seven and 12-years-old to learn about the subject with help from local artists.

The course at the museum in Kingston's Crescent will include a look at different uses of art such as how police artwork is created.

Charity the Arts Award has helped set up the classes which run until March 26 and cost £30 to join.
