Supporting you to discover, explore and make the most of the Whitworth through free resources, tours and self led opportunities.
Early Years Atelier
Book out our Clore Learning Studio.
Facilitated by an experienced Atelierista (studio assistant), these unique sessions adopt the early years philosophy of Reggio Emilia.
The studio opens directly onto an art garden and large open doors connect the children inside to the natural world outside. The Atelier (or art studio) encourages child-led artistic exploration. It is a laboratory for trying out ideas and playing with materials, a space where children can get messy, play creatively and follow their own interests.
Choose from the following Atelier themes:
- Nature Play
- Light and Dark
Ideal for EYFS, Nurseries, Children’s Centres and Community Groups working with children under 5 and particularly suitable for those working with under 2s.
Half day - £90
