Looking at Art

Session Description

Join us to look at art in our paintings galleries and explore people and portraits with our Museum Teachers. This session is suitable for KS1 or KS2.

Contact us on 01223 332904 or email to book, or to discuss your needs.

Format of the session

Each museum-led session is scheduled for two hours. The group will be taught by a museum teacher in the paintings galleries for an hour, and then do a self-led session. We will provide printable resources you can use for this.

We are still finalising dates and plans for Autumn 2022 for Looking at Art sessions. Sessions won't be running in September, but once dates for the rest of the term are confirmed they will be available to book [here] (

‘I really liked looking at the paintings, and I now look at art in a different way. The Museum teacher made it very easy to understand and it was so fun!’ – KS2 pupil
