Holiday activities

Family workshops

During most school holidays we offer free artist led workshops for families. These sessions are suitable for all ages; we often work with 2 artists, one with an early years specialism and one who develops activities for older children. Keep an eye on this website for more details.

Don’t forget our Clore Art Studio is open daily and that you can borrow a tool belt to explore the gallery anytime. If you want to draw, just ask our VS team if you can borrow a drawing pack from the front desk.

Join us in the Clore Art Studio on Wednesday 19, Thursday 20, Friday 21 and Saturday 22 February to help you prepare for World Book Day which this year is on  Thursday 5 March. In May 2020 we are opening a brand new creative facility for families. As part of this we are trialing a “making space” to enable more children to enjoy taking part in this annual international reading initiave.
