Family Friday – Open Art & Learning

For this week’s Family Friday, we have activities which are more to do with learning about art, rather than practically undertaking it – so have your thinking caps at the ready!

We have been very fortunate to exhibit the work of significant well-known British artists, as well as the incredible work of local artists in our Knowsley Open Art Exhibitions (many of whom are making big waves in the art world!) covering a wide range of art movements and styles. With this in mind, we thought this would be a great opportunity for you to find out what you know about styles of painting – it might even help students and pupils who have gone back to school, who may have an art assignment.

There are also lots of brilliant films, radio interviews and resources about artists available on BBC iPlayer which you may enjoy. Here are just a few:
