I Spy: Up Close With Objects!

Meet our Collection Manager and Learning team for an exciting opportunity to get up close and handle objects from our permanent collections. Sessions are designed for, and aimed, at pre-schoolers and their grown-ups and are a fun, playful way to explore our collection. Each session also includes a making activity linked to the objects. You are welcome to explore the rest of the galleries after the session.


A selection of our portrait miniatures long-term loan collection will be our first objects in this series. Be the first group to explore these amazing miniatures close up!

You will pop on special gloves to become an Art Detective, look for clues about the people in the portraits, examine how they were made and why. The sessions are designed to be informal, active and responsive to the children in the group. We know little ones and their grown ups need flexibility so don’t worry about being a bit noisy or needing to move about!

Each session will include a craft activity for children to try out and take away and of course the grown- ups get to handle the objects too!
