A performing arts organisation is offering people online tutorials after coronavirus forced it to postpone its events.

Studio 3 Arts based in Boundary Road, Barking, is launching #S3AatHome an online and virtual arts programme.

Among its online offer, its team of freelance artists is creating online tutorials for the Big Deal Youth Arts programme. Sessions are due to happen at the same times as the real life sessions usually do.

Family Saturdays with artists creating craft tutorials to follow at home with the children continue online as well as Singing Collective rehearsals in a closed Facebook group led by Linton Bennett.
