Over at Cartwright Hall Art Gallery*, pupils use an original Lowry painting from 1952 to help them understand what life was like in the past. Pupils then create their own landscape piece after looking at shape and colour then relate Lowry’s
landscape to their own locality.
Or choose an introduction to Bradford artist, David Hockney (who celebrated his 80th birthday in July) where pupils investigate his chosen methods and colours to create their own artwork. We can run this
Hello Hockney workshop at 1 hour for £76 so it is the perfect introduction to local history and art, especially for Year 1.
At Bradford Industrial Museum, let your topic - and pupils’ curiosity - guide you around the museum in our enquiry based workshop
The Art and Science of Noticing. We offer a transport focussed session for Year 2 using maps then pupils create their own transport timeline choosing from carts, carriages, a tram, a trolleybus, a steam train, bicycles, motorcycles
plus a large collection of Bradford made Jowett cars and vans.
Our KS1 workshops are normally 1.5 hours long (at £96):
