There are several ways your students can experience a day at Lakeside Arts, be that a full day or half day, it's up to you how you fill it!

Our Offer

We offer a flexible approach to school visits with a wide range of options available for all Key Stages. As we are a multi-arts venue, we offer a unique experience for schools, with a wide array of options to suit your needs.

Every Thursday and Friday, schools are welcome to book gallery and museum visits, theatre trips, and a range of visual arts, drama, and literature workshops.

All of our workshops are run by experienced professionals, Associate Artists who are experts in their field. Our workshops are also fully accessible, so can be tailored to all needs and abilities.

Visits and workshops cost:

  • £150 for one workshop over a half-day, led by one artist.
  • £250 for two workshops over a full day, led by one artist.*
  • £450 for four workshops over a full day, led by two artists.

*We can work with a maximum of 60 students on one day which will be split between two 30-student workshops. Whilst one group works with the artist, the other group will have a teacher-led session.

Our two Year One classes visited Lakeside Arts. The children were truly mesmerised by the variety of artwork in the art gallery and enjoyed exploring. [They] showed particular interest to the moon sculpture, viewing from different angles and discussing the detail, [before] using their observational skills to draw some of the sculptures in the gallery ... Children thought of abstract ideas this included solar systems, summer days and even sea life. The children used chalk on black paper and added small sections of gold leaf to create a unique piece of art. As all great artists do, the children showcased their artwork and explained the thought process behind their designs. Thank you for welcoming us to Lakeside, the experience was welcoming, well-organised and thoroughly enjoyed by both staff and children."
