Primary Schools

We understand the importance of experimentation, curiosity and unbridled play as central to creative practice, and design spaces where children can become comfortable with open-ended imaginative processes.

Our Guided Tours and Studio Workshops provide interactive opportunities for participants to develop emotional agility, embodied sensitivity and critical thinking in both making and responding to works of art.

Please get in touch to find out more about current tour and workshop options.

Making art makes me feel like I’m a submarine inside a spaceship.
It’s like breathing and diving at the same time.
And I can’t believe I learned to use a drill!

Ella, age 9

Well, it’s different to school because I feel like artists let me know my own things, and they also know their own things, but they make you feel like their things aren’t more important than your things. Also, you can make a mess. It is tiring trying to stay clean all the time.
Benjamin, age 7
