What's happening at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre.



We hope you have all had a great autumn term and enjoyed your Christmas holidays.
We have lots of innovative and engaging ways for schools to get the most out of our exhibitions this year.
20-21 Visual Arts Centre offers the following should you be interested for the future.
Self guided tours which are free, we just ask that you let us know.
Guided tours which cost £15 but you have a Learning Assistant to take you around the gallery and give you additional information on the building and exhibitions.
Both the above can be enhanced by booking the Activity Table for £1 per child and they can create a piece of work relating to the exhibitions.
We also offer core workshops and bespoke workshops. Starting from just £4 per pupil.
Core workshops are workshops that have already been planned and are slightly cheaper. They are clay, print and shadow puppet based.
Bespoke workshops are designed to your chosen topics.
The above (except print) can be delivered here at 20-21 or as outreach at your school.
We also offer project work, after school clubs and teacher training.
Please contact us with any questions you may have regarding what we can offer.

A fresh facelift for 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

If you haven’t visited 20-21 Visual Arts Centre in the last couple of months why not pop along and see the brand new facilities we have. There is a new cafe, shop and toilet facilities along with a fantastic refurbished education room which is now known as Space at 20-21. This room is available for hire by the hour and for a full day. It is also where our education workshops are held.

‘Arts for All’ a fun way to learn together.

Since September 2015, 20-21 Visual Arts Centre has been delivering an exciting new project called Arts for All at Crosby Primary. We have taken key foundation tools of art such as drawing, colour and painting to develop a year long programme to up-skill teachers and pupils together. So far the whole school has received 13 sessions based on observational drawing skills using pencils, pens and charcoal. There has been lots of fantastic work, excellent feedback and many black, charcoal hands but great fun was had by all.  We are looking forward to this terms sessions.
