The City Museum & Art Gallery
This 19th century building houses Worcester's principal art gallery, themed social history displays, as well as an exhibition about the Worcestershire Regiment and Yeomanry Cavalry. The Art Gallery holds many impressive examples of fine art featuring works by the 19th Century landscape painter, B.W. Leader, watercolourists David Cox and Peter DeWint, examples by Barbara Hepworth, Laura Knight and Elizabeth Frink, to more contemporary works by artists such as Gillian Ayers, Bruce Maclean and Jock McFadyen to name but a few.
The educational focus is presently on the permanent collection, where sessions are designed to support EYFS, Cross-Curricular teaching and National Curriculum units relating to History (key stage 1 and 2) and Art & Design (key stage 1 and 2). Workshops are suitable for Nursery Groups, Reception Classes, Key Stage 1 and SEN groups [click here - MS Word Doc] and additional workshops for Key Stage 1 and SEN groups [click here - MS Word Doc] and workshops for Key Stage 2 [click here - MS Word Doc].
