Mission Statement
Establishing Strong links between educational establishments and local artists, enabling and encouraging participation of the learning community to raise awareness of the visual arts

OPEN STUDIOS WBNH founder, educator and fundraiser, the late Pat Eastop, established an amazing programme of art education alongside  OPEN STUDIOS. For many years Pat raised funds and organised incredible experiences for young people with artists-in-residence. Some of the testimonials from these experiences have been truly inspiring and have put art centre-stage for these young people. If you are an educator and would like to get involved in future collaborative projects with local artists please get in touch

Bring your pupils and students to our flagship exhibition INSIGHT. Our downloadable worksheet below will help students create response-artwork to the exhibits.
