The Children's Programme at Butler Gallery is suitable for 5-12 year olds, this age bracket may vary depending on the workshop. The programme begins with a look at work from our collection and exhibitions where children are encouraged to share their thoughts, ideas and opinions about selected these works. After this, they have an opportunity to make their own work in response.

Facilitated by professional artists, children are encouraged to express their opinions, learn about art and use a variety of interesting and exciting materials to create their own art works.

Under Covid-19 restrictions, workshops are currently being held online.
