Parents can join their children at an arts and crafts event next week.

Families will be taught how to use various materials, including charcoal, oil pastels and computer software, to create works of art.

It runs from 1pm to 4.30pm at Leyton Library in High Road, Leyton, on January 15.

From 1pm to 2.30pm it is parents only, and 3.30pm to 4.30pm it is for the whole family.

The event is part of a free four-lesson course running until February 5.
