Our stunning collection is a great way to expose students to a broad range of media: paintings, portrait miniatures, sculpture, ceramics, silver and textiles. We’re renowned for our eighteenth century paintings by such famous artists as Gainsborough, Ramsay, Stubbs, Raeburn and Zoffany. Students can broaden their knowledge and find endless inspiration for their own portfolios.
We also have a programme of high profile temporary exhibitions, often drawing on national and international collections, plus interventions by contemporary artists and can offer workshops linked to these. Please see Secondary School & Further Education News for details of these and other programmes that we can offer your students. Please call to discuss how we might tailor a workshop to meet your requirements. We can also arrange life drawing sessions at the Museum for your students.
Our workshops can also be adapted for small groups of pupils with special educational needs, giving added emphasis to sensory experience.
