Big Art for Little Artists is a dedicated children’s gallery at the Walker Art Gallery, curated for children in EYFS.

This colourful, interactive space hosts paintings, sculptures costumes, toys, books, games, and craft materials for children to explore.

The Walker Art Gallerys’ youngest visitors will learn what an art gallery is and why it is the perfect place for them to learn in and love to visit.

In their staff facilitated session, children can take part in an arty scavenger hunt, experiment with craft and mark making materials and express themselves in imaginative play.

All activities are age and ability appropriate with strong links to the Early Years Framework.
