Monsters and Beasts

Over 140 five to seven year old children from Lethbridge School in Old Town Swindon are creating monsters and beasts in the art gallery this week and next. The children are taking inspiration from 'Jake and Dinos Chapman: My Colouring Book' exhibition and Maurice Sendak's 'Where the Wild Things Are'.

The session combines storytelling, drama and drawing

The children play picture consequences to create fantastic beasts and design their very own monsters in chalk, charcoal and pastels.

Each session finishes with a 'wild rumpus'!

If you are a teacher who would like your pupils to have a thoroughly creative time here, contact Elaine Bennett, Education Officer on 01793 466556 or

Sessions like this one are designed around school-based themes.

We also have off-the-shelf sessions on Art, the Egyptians and Romans.

Jake and Dinos Chapman: My Giant Colouring Book is a Hayward Touring Exhibition, from Southbank Centre, London, on behalf of Arts Council, England.
