Designed for age 3+, but all are welcome

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum exhibits a wide selection of artworks and and hosts many contemporary art exhibitions. We aim to make these spaces welcoming for all, encouraging children to engage with our exhibitions. To support this, our expert Learning Team offer a series of relaxed, monthly art stories, specially designed for a younger audience. 

Each month in the gallery spaces we will be reading a 15-minute story about a different global artist. The storytelling will present a perspective on the artist’s experiences and will support children with their own interpretations of artworks.

After listening to the story, children will have the opportunity to reimagine our collections through the lens of the artist, by actively participating in discussions and drawing works on display in the style of the artist they have learned about. 

We are also an Arts Award venue, where your children can gain their Arts Award Discover or Explore, a nationally recognised qualification from Trinity College London. To find out more visit our Arts Award at Home page.
