The go-to guide for you and your child
Shipley Art Gallery Gateshead: Crafty Kids

Shipley Art Gallery Gateshead: Crafty Kids

A fun-filled session led by our friendly Early Years specialists, Julie and Jenny. Each session is based around a theme found in the artworks, such as colour, texture, line and animals.

Discover the gallery with your little ones, and support their early development in a fun and relaxed way. In these sessions, families will discover the artworks, get creative with a range of art materials, and explore the gallery together. There’ll be stories, songs, and fun creative activities – all designed to actively engage pre-schoolers with the gallery.

We’ll gather in our cosy lounge for stories and singing. No need to sit still for long though – we’ll be going exploring, doing treasure hunts around the gallery, and playing creatively to help us discover the artworks on display. At each session you’ll make something to take home, using a wide range of art materials which are not too messy.

Session themes:

2 July: ‘Clock mouse’ – Go on a hunt to find the missing mice from our clock. Make your own clock and mouse puppet.
16 July: ‘Crocodile Eggs’ – Hunt the missing eggs, before making a crocodile puppet to take home.

Best suited to 2-5 year olds but younger children also welcome.
