Discover the Arts

The arts are all around us! Music, Painting, Literature, Pottery and many more. Go on a scavenger hunt round your house, or round your local area and see how many you can find. Circle any art forms you can see in the Discover the Arts section of your logbook.

Part A – Take Part and Part B – Find out More

It is time to be creative! Take part in an arts activity and find out more about a famous artist. Our Families Live: Museum Mornings are available on our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel. In the below sessions you will find out about a famous artist, learn about a type of art and have a go at trying it yourself! From drawing to painting, there are lots of activities you can do. Watch one of the videos and use the information to help you fill out Parts A and B of your logbook.
