Group Gallery Tours using VTS

Tuesdays or Thursdays, 11am, family/adult/teen groups of 5+ persons, free, booking essential, duration: 60mins.

Tours continue throughout visual art exhibitions.

Bring your group to the upstairs gallery and explore some of the artworks in our current exhibition. Use VTS to discuss and build a deeper understanding of ‘what’s going on in this artwork’. This informal conversation is an opportunity for you to focus and reflect on multiple perspectives, enhancing engagement and enjoyment of learning through art.

Guided by Deirdre, our learning and engagement coordinator, use Visual Thinking Strategies to expand pupils’ thoughts on ‘what’s going on in these artworks’.

Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is an inquiry-based method of visual processing – looking, describing and discussing what we see in a work of art. It is about listening to others, responding and expanding thoughts and new possibilities revealed within group engagement. VTS improves oral and visual literacy, problem solving and collaborative interactions among peers. Suitable for all ages, VTS tours are best with groups of 5 or more.
