The Artworks Collection offers schools the opportunity to borrow original works of art from a collection of over 1000 stunning works including many well-known artists such as Picasso, David Hockney and Peter Howson. Paintings, drawings, sculpture, prints and photographs are all represented in this unique resource. Recently acquired works have been selected to support the curriculum and learning in schools.
Artworks can cover:
- The world around us, landscapes, cities, countryside and seascapes
- Wildlife, including tigers, badgers, foxes and birds
- Portraits and pictures of people
- Art that can be touched including wood carved reliefs, large sculpture and small tactile bronzes
- Bright colourful works including rainbows and abstract pictures to brighten up a room
- “Reverspectives” that move and change perspective as you walk past them
