Pupils encounter highlights from the diverse collection at the Hunt Museum in a fun and accessible way. Pupils will build their observation skills through problem-solving, investigation, drawing, and discussion. In an age-appropriate way, children explore artistic elements such as shape, line, colour, and texture. Children encounter simple historical concepts.
