Manchester Art Gallery

FREE schools workshop: The Greeks’ Takeover

We would love to invite our neighbours round for a Greek celebration!
We can accommodate four KS2 classes of approx 30 in any one day and we are FREE to Manchester schools.

Each class will have a storytelling workshop along with a Greek design making workshop as well as getting to explore the gallery.

The Battle of Troy
Our Greek inspired building, artefacts and artworks portraying Gods and Goddesses will be used to transport you to the battle of Troy. Interactive storytelling unravels the key events of this epic tale and help uncover the enduring legacy of Ancient Greece.

Birth of Pandora
Using storytelling techniques we will lead you through our historical collection to explore justice and hope. As we bring this well loved myth to life you will discover if your pupils are curious enough to open the box.

Build a Parthenon
Working with artist Vennessa Scott and responding to our building pupils will collaborate to create key patterns, columns and pelmets to produce a class Parthenon to take back to school.

Full day sessions run from 10.15 – 14.15, with lunch break.

To book please get in touch:

Why not take advantage of our Kids for a quid scheme with Metrolink where pupils travel for £1 return and accompanying adults for £2 return, we are directly across from the St Peters square Metrolink stop.
