Teacher-led Visits

Bring your school, college or university to The Hepworth Wakefield and lead your group around our exhibitions and garden.

Our exciting exhibitions offer opportunities for learning and discovery and we encourage everyone to explore, draw, look, think, discuss and create during their visit.

We have a range of  teacher-led resources you can hire to support your visit and make the most of your time in the gallery and garden.

Borrow our Exploring Art Kits to creatively explore the artworks. Discover what you can see, hear and smell with your own Garden Sketchbooks. Go on a journey through the gallery with Reg, our Sensory Snake.

You can also book our class-size lockers and indoor picnic area for free as part of your visit.

Drawing at The Hepworth

You are welcome to bring your own sketchbooks, clipboards and paper to use while exploring the galleries (A3 or smaller).

To protect the artworks we don’t allow wet materials or sharp tools in the galleries such as pens, paints, charcoal, playdough, oil pastels, scissors.


For teachers who would like to do a pre-visit before your planned trip, we offer a complimentary ticket to the gallery. Please contact learning@hepworthwakefield.org to arrange.

“There are lots of interesting pieces of artwork that look like nothing I’ve seen before. I enjoyed spending time looking and drawing them.” Dixons Unity Academy student
