The well-being of our staff and visitors is our priority at this time and, as a result of government guidance, we've taken the decision to temporarily suspend all bookings for our on-site learning sessions.

These gallery-based, cross-cultural sessions combine critical thinking, discussion, looking, making and drawing activities.

Working with a skilled contemporary artist-educator who has an extensive knowledge of contemporary artistic practice and curriculum needs, students are encouraged to make links between Museum collections and different cultures through time.

These sessions aim to encourage enquiry, investigation and creative experimentation working within the Museum to explore ideas around themes in the Art and Design curriculum. 

Ages: 11–18 (KS3, KS4 and KS5)

Curriculum links: Art and Design

Maximum students per day: 80 (split into four groups).

Minimum group numbers per school: 10 students.

Session time: 90 minutes for up to 20 students
