Schools and Colleges
While our galleries are closed due to the pandemic, we have created a series of online resources to enable schools to engage with our exhibitions remotely.
Art Encounters is a new series of free short films for schools with accompanying resources, created in partnership with our neighbours at Leeds Art Gallery.
Throughout 2020 we launched a selection of creative activity resources for children, many of which are adaptable for use in the classroom, or for remote learning.
Our partners at Yorkshire Sculpture International have created a Sculpture Toolkit for schools, filled with vocabulary and activities to explore sculpture in the classroom.
We aim to provide a stimulating environment in which to explore sculpture. Our educational activities make links to our exhibition programme, and provide excellent opportunities for focused and enriching learning experiences.
Due to the current coronavirus situation, we are unable to accommodate group visits. We hope to be able to resume school visits when government restrictions are lifted.
We offer free guided visits for groups of up to 20 pupils, which include a guided tour of our galleries and a short creative activity inspired by the work.
We work in close partnership with our neighbours at Leeds Art Gallery and can run parallel visits for school groups, suitable for up to 40 pupils.
For secondary schools, we can also provide tours of our library and archive and, for KS5 and FE, run short research activities to familiarize students with our extensive sculpture library.
Experience Henry Moore's iconic work in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside. Visit the artist's former home, see the studios he worked in, and discover over 20 of his sculptures in the gardens.
We offer guided tours, free of charge, to school and college groups from Year 3 upwards.
