Schools Programme

The Imaginarium Arts Centre goes beyond the conventional environment of learning by inspiring children to imagine, create, explore and engage in our creative arts environment. Our programmes, events and exhibits are designed to spark the imagination and give a child the freedom and space to explore their own creative potential, build their confidence and self esteem.  With every visit children create unique arts based projects and experiences that reflect and celebrate their creativity.

Age Range: 

Pre-school to Key stage 3 (In keeping with national curriculum)

Our skilled artists will guide the class to think outside the box, to use their imagination to create individual pieces of art. (All the necessary materials provided)


The Imaginarium!

The Imaginarium is a very special emporium where children let their imagination go wild! Open the secret door and step in the magical world of the Imaginarium, a world of exploration and play! The Imaginarium is a world like no other! Hide in the secret tunnel, jump over the bridge, visit the village in the forest, dress up as a pirate or a dinosaur, sail through the river, make a wish in the well, take the helm and fly to the moon… everything is possible!​

Teachers/ teaching assistants are required to participate in all activities and are responsible for the children within your group. The Imaginarium staff cannot at any time be held responsible for any school or group visiting.
