The Bowes Museum's exhibitions inspire youth art clubs.

Youngsters from North Yorkshire are to visit The Bowes Museum as part of a week long art course.

The 5 to 12 year olds will find out about contemporary and traditional artists.

They'll also visit the LEGO®:Building The Bowes Museum and Frances Priest:Influences of the East exhibitions, where they'll draw inspiration from the different styles of art and techniques used to make the objects before creating two separate artworks to take home.

They'll also draw on their experience visiting the Museum when they recreate further artworks during The Art Week.
