Sketchbook Tours for Schools

Schoolchildren with sketchbooks at Tate St Ives © Tate

Group tours led by an artist-educator encouraging creative responses to works on display

A 90-minute session at either Tate St Ives or the Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden, led by an artist educator.

Group members will be given a sketchbook and pencil to keep and the artist will use other resources and drawing materials during the session.

Participants will be encouraged to respond creatively using a range of recording techniques, with the emphasis on being able to develop work independently after the session.

At Tate St Ives, groups may choose to focus on Modern Art and St Ives or the temporary exhibition.

After the session your group may explore independently under adult or group leader supervision.
