Workshops with Museums and Galleries.
Inspired by our work with museums and heritage organisations, our enjoyable and practical Storytelling workshops offer a way for children to creatively explore and understand Heritage, Art and History. Children create and find stories within museums and galleries to help them make personal connections to, and therefore find interest in the culture, information or knowledge that surrounds them.
We are happy to work with you on ensuring the workshop suits any particular theme or subject. We have previously created school visits and activities at The British Museum, The Natural History Museum, The Museum of London, Docklands Museum, Tate Britain and Modern, Museum of Childhood, The Geffrye Museum, The National Maritime Museum, Croydon Museum, the Tower of London, Kensington Palace, 2 Temple Place and The Horniman Museum.
These workshops are an excellent way to explore issues and ideas in an engaging and memorable way. They help build pupils' self-confidence, team-work, speaking and listening skills, interpretation abilities and facilitate empathy and awareness for other points of view and ways of life.
Our workshop 'Gallery Stories' (KS2/3) teaches the basic structure and content for stories through the deconstruction and interpretation of figurative art, which is currently being turned into a teaching module for the London Grid for Learning (LGfL.
