Art & Culture Tours with Creative Briefs

This week saw the launch of our new Art & Culture Tours, suitable for Key Stage 2.

Led by the Creative Teams team, children from Estcourt Primary Academy enjoyed a tour of some of the best art venues in Hull. The aim of our tours is to challenge pupil’s perceptions of what art is, the value of art, and how people make a living through creative talents.

Along the way we met with designers, artists, and curators, who spoke to the pupils about their jobs, and the skills they use everyday, meaning pupils saw first hand how people can use creative skills to carve out a successful career.
