Arts engagement

Art workshops last two hours unless otherwise stated and include an interactive talk and practical art-making activities; sessions are designed to enhance visual literacy and develop technical and creative skills. 

Art in nature

Visit must include the garden

Using the diverse collection of plants in the Chatsworth Garden, this session connects with nature and explores shape and texture in natural and organic form. Pupils will be introduced to a range of looking and drawing techniques through creative exploration and development of 2D image-making skills.

The life cycle of the plant will also be introduced and learners will explore shape, texture, colour and detail, recording these observations through a range of mark making exercises.
