CM15 – Part day and Full day
This workshop offer can include an exploration of a variety of creative arts skills and techniques linked to the topic of Societies. The workshops are based upon the exhibitions and collections and provide opportunities to Investigate, Create and even learn how to design your own exhibitions. We encourage learners to engage positively with the art works and to demonstrate creative thinking and develop skills such as communication and empathy skills. Learners will be inspired to create their own art works.
From Autumn 2020 this offer will link to a themed loans kit offer with art examples from the Usher collection. Watch out for updates and our new Investigate Learning on Tour section.
