The Sackler Centre for Arts Education has reopened again after being refurbished; there now is a new courtyard and gallery space. 

New for Primary schools is the Little Inventors workshop which allows children to discover weird and wonderful inventions, and the Winnie-the-Pooh Pop-Up Stories workshop which gathers inspiration from the story for children to create their own pop-up books.

More workshops and sessions that will be available in the New Year include Discovering Materials and Investigating Pattern for Key Stage 1 and 2, linking to Art & Design and for History there’s the How We Used To Dress workshop and Anglo Saxon Art & Culture sessions, also for Primary schools.

Brand new workshops for Secondary schools include Design Phototyping, Ceramics and Digital Animation.

Other activities for Secondary students include Research & Record sessions which look at how artists and designers are influenced by others. There will also be an Experimental Drawing workshop available which will allow pupils to explore new areas and find their own creativity and inspiration.

All school workshops and sessions are available on selected dates and teachers should look on the website for booking information.

There’s also upcoming events suitable for schools too, such as Opera: Passion, Power and Politics Schools’ & Colleges’ Exhibition Day which will take place on 7th November, and the Winnie-The-Pooh: Exploring the Classic Exhibition Day available on selected dates in January, February and March.
