A tour of the ‘Brick by Brick‘ exhibition will encourage children to look more closely using a variety of activity sheets. These will give the children clues about how to look at the work and how to develop their own tastes and judgements. The sheets will focus on aesthetic awareness in relation to colour, texture, pattern, shape and structure.

After a tour of the exhibition, a practical session will follow, taking place in our Education Room.

What could be more exciting and creative than building with lots and lots of LEGO® bricks and bringing topics to life through fun? Taking inspiration from the exhibition the children will work with specialist builder Stephen from Creative Builders in a LEGO® building workshop creating two imaginary worlds.

They will:

  • Discuss ideas from the exhibition, what type of things could they build out of LEGO® taking inspiration from the artworks they have seen.
  • Work in teams to create a plan for the worlds the children would like to create. For example sculptures, stylised houses, eco-friendly buildings, play areas etc. The possibilities are endless.
  • Learn how to be a good builder.
  • Build the worlds in teams.

The workshop will encourage children to observe, work as a team, problem solve and use their imaginations. These highly engaging and hands-on workshops allow primary aged pupils the opportunity to explore their creative minds and build amazing worlds.
