Learning for Life

During the COVID-19 emergency Victoria Art Gallery is offering ‘Learning for Life’ online for all. Discover more about the world of art and get creative. It's great for home schoolers too!

Collage activity for Toulouse-Lautrec
Draw a dancing figure on plain paper, an interesting outline or a 'silhouette' and try out a rubbing technique. Your artwork can be made from materials that many of you will have at home!

Dancing figure
Print off the template and create your own dancing figure inspired by our Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition. 

Print with polystyrene
Toulouse-Lautrec and his friends printed beautiful posters in Paris in the 1890s. You can recycle polystyrene from pizza packaging to make a printing block.

Try out Sgrafitto
This activity is inspired by Grayson Perry's piece 'Posh Art' which is on display in our permanent collection. Grayson Perry uses a technique called 'sgraffito', or scratching. Learn how to do it on card!

Jane Austen's Bath
Have you got a Jane Austen novel on your book shelf? Why not give it a re-read and catch up with some information about her time living in Bath. View a selection of the images and stories behind the paintings that were on display in our 2015 exhibition.
