Designed for age 11 - 16

Discover creative ways to develop a personal response to art, inspired by the collections at the Herbert. Participants will create a hybrid of a sketchbook and diary using imagination and art resources. For any emerging young artists this is a great way to connect with their own personal narrative and embed that in their practice, whilst having a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing. Lindsay Jane Hunter, who will lead the workshop, is a therapeutic arts and drama practitioner based in Coventry who is passionate about facilitating opportunities to be creative and build connections. 

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 all of these activities. 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.
