Children & Families

Orleans House Gallery

Have fun exploring art skills and techniques in our new fortnightly Friday morning workshops for 2–5-year-olds.  

Join artist Abigail Hunt to explore playful and creative environments for early years children and their accompanying adults. Through building, making, playing and investigating you and your child will work together to make and experience images, sculptures, textures, sounds and light.  

These workshops have been designed to nurture creativity and curiosity, and support early years skill development in communication, co-ordination and social interaction. 

Abigail Hunt is a visual artist and a freelance arts educator, who has been facilitating creative projects and creating resources for families in galleries for over twenty years. She has extensive experience working with the early years age group, believing that workshops for very young children are about the whole experience and creating unique opportunities for moments of shared exploration between children and adults, where they can be equal in their creativity. 

Abigail has worked with many different galleries and organisations including Whitechapel, Studio Voltaire, Southwark Park Gallery, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Tate Modern and Britain.
