Please see available workshops below and book by requesting a booking form from schoolbookings@ng-london.org.uk.  

EYFS and KS1: Mini masterpieces

Sing, sway and jump into a painting with a musical story.

Students will be guided in the tools and techniques to create their own mini masterpiece.

KS1 and KS2: What can paintings tell us about drawing?

Students learn to see the drawing behind the painting using traditional tools and techniques to develop an understanding of line, tone and perspective.

KS1 and KS2: Colour and light

See paintings in a new light by learning how artists make and use colour.

KS2: Messengers

Explore colour, light and shape.

Students will be introduced to Bridget Riley's wall painting, Messengers, and connected works, experimenting with different ways of looking, drawing and using colour.

The session could be a good starting point for projects back in the classroom.

KS2: Monet and architecture

Monet captured a changing world with light, colour and a style all of his own.

Students will explore the architecture that shapes their own lives and learn how to use Monet’s techniques to create an artwork describing a place that’s important to them.
