Every day pick up free activities in the Clore Welcome Room on Level 0, Natalie Bell Building or from the Hello Families cube. Collect Cone, Sculpture Strip or our Time-traveller activity. For younger visitors, Collection Case invites a hands on exploration connected to the Materials and Objects display on L4, Natalie Bell Building.
You don’t need to be an expert to look at or talk about art. Don’t feel you have to ‘get it’ to enjoy it – take whatever you like from a piece.
You and your family can try these activities in any of the galleries. Remember it's ok to talk at Tate! It's ok to make some noise!
Strike a pose
Get your child to secretly choose an artwork with a person in it. Once they have looked carefully at the pose, find a space in the room and encourage them to try to recreate the pose. The rest of the group can then try and spot the artwork the pose came from
Give us a clue
Encourage your child to find a portrait in the gallery that reminds them of someone in your group; someone famous; someone you all know (perhaps a neighbour or a friend). With the help of clues, the rest of the group can guess the chosen person
See it from their perspective
Get down to your child’s height and see what they see. The change in eye-level might make you think and feel differently
We encourage young people to explore art and idea to take ownership of the gallery.
