About

The Laing’s popular Art Academy sessions for 7-10 year olds run over three days in the school holidays. Young people will have the opportunity to explore the galleries and try out a range of art techniques from painting with acrylics and watercolours to drawing and illustrating, sculpting with clay and experimenting with printmaking.

*There is also the opportunity for participants to achieve the nationally accredited Explore level Arts Award.

Please bring a packed lunch each day and wear clothes you don't mind getting messy.

This course aims to be fully inclusive and children with additional needs are welcome. If you'd like to have an informal conversation with a tutor before booking please email learning@laingartgallery.org.uk.  



Parent review:

'I just wanted to thank you and your team for the Art Academy...prior to last week my son was not all that keen on art and perceived himself to be “rubbish” at it. However, roll forward a week and the sense of both achievement and more crucially pride in his art work was immense..[my son] was so proud to display his work and talk about the techniques and styles used...the positivity and enthusiasm together with encouragement from the Academy is just wonderful.'
