My First Gallery Visit
A fun introduction to art and art galleries, this session explores the Gallery through the eyes of our youngest visitors. Groups investigate our latest exhibition with a member of the Learning team and begin to think about the artists, pictures, frames and labels they find along the way. Focus is then given to 2 or 3 pictures or objects, where the children hear stories about the work, adding their own ideas based on what they see.
Our next exhibtion, Treasures from The Queen's Palaces (16 March - 4 November 2012) includes beautiful Fabergé eggs, sparkling jewels, portraits, landscapes and crowns. After exploring the Gallery, pupils create their own royal treasure to take home.
