Creativity thrives for local schools at The Lowry

Over the spring term at The Lowry we have had over 100 schools with more than 3000 students visiting us to take part in creative workshops.

Working with professional artists, school children from Salford and beyond have taken out their paint brushes, put on their dancing shoes and pulled out their best acting skills to learn through creativity.

From painting and 3D Model making to dance workshops and drama classes, children and young people from Salford to Germany have made the journey to The Lowry in Salford, to use creativity and culture as a way to inspire and excite children themselves to learn.

One Year 4 class from Willow Tree Primary School in Pendleton, Salford visited this term, to explore the world of LS. Lowry and his Industrial Landscapes of the North. Linking to history, geography and art the children worked with Jack, one of our professional artists, to get creative and produce their very own LS.Lowry inspired Industrial Landscape to take back to school.

The following month Bridgewater Primary School from Little Hulton in Salford then paid us a visit with their Year 3 class to explore their own identify through a Portraits drawing workshop with Michelle. Children learnt how to draw their own faces and took their brilliant art work back to school to share with their fellow students.

The variety of workshops this term have been so varied and exciting, from the use of art to explore ‘the Plague’ as a history topic to drama workshops to explore Shakespeare. We have thoroughly enjoyed the mix of school workshops this Spring and can’t wait to get stuck into the summer term.
