Here are some suggested ideas for workshops, however we can adapt the session with your interests in mind:
- Sketch book work, We will hold a group discussion about the work, using open questioning we encourage every child to share their ideas, thoughts and opinions about the work. Then make and fill a sketch book. experiment with mark making, collage, drawing and print to reflect the energy and themes of the exhibition. 
- Inspired by Rachel Jones and Mark Surridge work, we will make a college and then print with found plastic objects of the image.

You are welcome to book a school visit with us and take your class around the exhibition yourself.

We can provide you with information about the current show.

Self-guided visits work particularly well in supporting Arts Award and sketchbook work.
