MUSEUM AND ART GALLERY
Don't miss what’s coming up
The French painter, sculptor and designer, Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was one of the 20th century’s most influential artists. His vibrant works are celebrated for their extraordinary richness and luminosity of colour.
Come along to gather and forage for natural materials before creating your own mini-artworks in this creative session with artist Jane Bevan – free half day workshop.
Join Jonathan Wallis, Head of Museums, as he explores Matisse’s paper cuts which were created towards the end of his life and symbolise a dramatic change of creative practice for one of the most significant artists of the 20th century.
Tots Make and Do is a weekly session taking place every Friday morning during term time, where we welcome 2-5 year olds and their grown ups for crafts, games and stories inspired by our fabulous collections.
