Parent and Toddler Sessions

While VISUAL cannot host parent and toddler sessions in person for now, artist Siobhán Jordan has made a range of activities that you can enjoy with your toddler at home.

These easy activities are all about learning through play, exploring the senses, developing fine motor skills and spending creative time together.

These videos and activities are here for you until toddlers and their adults can come play and learn together through art inside the galleries.
