Summer schools at the Laing

Nurture your child's creativity this summer

Arranging childcare for the summer holidays isn't easy and all parents want to know that their children are safe and well looked after, but also having fun.

At the Laing we have a fantastic team of qualified art educators on hand to keep your child entertained throughout the summer. Children have the chance to get creative, improve their skills and make new friends. They will explore the gallery and take inspiration from the many works in the Laing collection, ranging from traditional paintings and drawings to sculpture, pottery and decorative art.

We have two different summer school models, adapted to suit different age groups. Click the links to the right to find out more.

Our summer schools aim to be fully inclusive and anyone with additional needs is welcome. If you would like to have an informal conversation with a member of the staff before attending then please contact the Laing learning team on
