Let’s visit the gallery – early years sessions
Key stage: EYFS KS1
Subject: Art & Design
Until 19 July 2013
Look at art in a fun way, young children are encouraged to explore the galleries and paintings through play, games, stories, songs, and a making activity.
These workshops have been designed in partnership with Early Years providers and KS1 teachers. They will support a child’s early experiences of an art gallery through fun and interactive games and hands on activities. Sessions are 1 hour. Recommended ratio: 1 adult per 6 children.
Themes you can book are:
•†† †Colour and Shapes
Explore colour and shape in the paintings through games, songs, stories and making activity.
•†† †Making Faces
Children will investigate 18th and 19th century portraits and create a simple portrait to take away.
•†† †Seaside Fun
Learn about the seascapes in the Northern Spirit gallery through giant collage and other fun activities. Then create a seascape collage to take back to school.
•†† †Animal Hunt – free teacher led activity
Animals are on the loose in the Art Gallery. Can you find them using our animal trail, full of sounds and pictures? This is a self led workshop but if you would like a gallery learning officer to lead it for you we are happy to help.
