We have created school only timeslots in January and February 2021, for you and your pupils or students to enjoy a curriculum-linked and interactive experience in the house. These are available Tuesdays and Thursdays from 19 January to 25 February beginning at 10am.
Contact us for more information.
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.
Curriculum links: science, English, PSHE, art & design
Visit can include the house, garden and/or farmyard
Pupils will discover new ways of observing and drawing artworks, focusing on line, shape and space to make compositional drawings. Individual drawings will then be used to experiment with printmaking, using monoprint techniques in the learning centre.
