About The Session

The aim of the workshop is to explore the use of colour in paintings by looking at landscapes in the museum’s collection. The session will contrast paintings of dark industrial landscapes with bright cheerful landscapes. The session will help children to understand how they can use colour to explore emotions. Pupils will be helped to describe a range of different paintings, focusing on the colours pupils can see and how the landscape makes them feel. The class will create a range of landscapes using bold colours, bright colours, sombre colours, dark colours and more.



We can accommodate a maximum of 35 pupils for this session.
