Designed for age 11 - 16

Join local performing arts company, Highly Sprung Performance, and take part in this creative, movement focused workshop, taking inspiration from the Herbert’s iconic art works, thinking about how we can animate the hidden stories of the pieces through movement. What would a painting say if it could speak? What would it look like if it could move? How can we use our bodies to explore the art works further and uncover their hidden histories. An ideal way to explore the beauty of visual arts combined with dance and performance. 

As part of this 3-hour workshop, all participating children will receive lunch, served from our museum café, Alfreds. Please let any food allergies be known at the time of booking. Parents are not required to stay for the duration of this workshop, but are welcome to, should they wish to. 

We have HAF spaces available at this Art Masterclass workshop. HAF is the Holiday and Activities Food Programme from Coventry City Council, funded by the Department for Education. If your child receives free school meals and lives in Coventry, they should be eligible. For further information and to book any of the above activities, free of charge and with a pre-packed lunch provided for your child too, please visit: 

Did you know we can support your child to achieve their Arts Award Discover if they are aged 5-11? Taking part in our school holiday activities and visiting our exhibitions helps them to do the majority of the work needed to complete their award. Find out more about the Arts Award from Home programme.
