Early Years

Young people learn through creativity. Explore our art sessions which develop children’s imagination, speaking and listening skills, their personal social and emotional development and their understanding of the world.

Sensing the Seasons: Crunch and Crackle
Use all your senses to explore the changing seasons; from looking at our paintings of woodland walks and harvest to touching natural objects and exploring the sounds of autumn. Make a collage hedgehog scene. This activity supports understanding of the natural world.

My Monster
Turn yourself into a monster with a monster of a mask. See some of your favourite monsters in our special exhibition. This activity supports expressive art and design.

All About Me!
Explore our pictures of people, dress up and make a mini self-portrait using card, pastels and collage. This activity supports personal, social and emotional development.

Animal Explorer
Discover animals in the gallery paintings and open our wooden animal ark to see who is inside. Make colourful jointed animals out of card, split pins and collage to take back to your setting. This activity supports expressive arts and design. 

Book a 60 minute session on 01225 477757 or email us. Sessions cost £48 per group.
