Children and Schools

We hope and expect that Turner’s House – once renovated – will become a busy resource for school groups, families and children. Open Days to date have shown how much children enjoy exploring an historic house and garden and how quickly they gain understanding and enthusiasm for painting and art when it is associated with a local individual.

At present the house is not suitable for school visits, but regular Open Days and in particular our very popular Big Draw events enable children of all ages to get involved and develop their artistic skills and knowledge of history in a friendly environment.

When renovation is complete, we will be looking at much closer links with local schools and colleges. Watch this space!
