This website has been designed to help children engage with Art and Nature and to improve visits to our gallery for families. Some areas will suit younger children and some will suit older children, and some will suit us big kids too! We have tried to make the site both fun and educational.
For teachers there is a separate area where you will find resources and information about school visits.
Dare to Dabble! is back for 2018. Designed completely around the absolute beginner, or those who just fancy a dabble, these sessions provide adults an opportunity to try out new art techniques and mediums.
Full details of art courses for adults can be found on Nature in Art’s main website.
Below you will find information about each page.
ABOUT THE PAGES

You will also find a page on the history of Wallsworth Hall and also in Explore there is a section called “in the day of..” this looks at different jobs within an art gallery and museum and gives information on how to get into that type of career. There are two links to external websites one to Your Paintings a BBC website with images of our oil paintings and a link to a nature website called opal explore.
