Delight in Watts

Delight in Watts stimulates children’s imaginations, exposing them to a bespoke gallery experience and challenging them to take creative risks to strengthen life skills and increase visual-arts confidence.

Over 6 weeks, children learn about and create art in an engaging and comprehensive way, gaining new knowledge and enriching topic learning.

Beginning with a ‘wow’ day at Watts Gallery, children explore the gallery and take part in an onsite workshop. Back at school, children participate in three full-day art workshops with professional artists from Paintbox creating artwork that is professionally exhibited at Watts Gallery and celebrated in a private view with family and friends.


86% of participating children felt proud of what they achieved.


67% of children eligible for Pupil Premium increased academic outcomes.


82% of participating children want to do more art.
