Come and play at our monthly multi-sensory sessions for under 5s
Things to do
Games to play in the gallery
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 its ok to talk at Tate! Its 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
Art Adventurers Town Trail
Are you ready for an art adventure in St Ives? As you follow our map around the town, learn about the artists that lived and worked here.
Get busy on the beach making marks, explore a hidden garden and find patterns in nature. Doodle, draw and note it all in your very own artist sketchbook.
Pick up a pack from the gallery for £3 with everything you need to explore and get creative.
Have fun exploring the museum and sculpture garden with the Hepworth Family Activity Trail.
Designed for adults and children to have fun together whilst discovering the magical environment that was Hepworth’s home and studio.
