Windlesham School enjoys Enter Gallery’s Street Art Tour

At Enter Gallery, we love nothing more than meeting our fellow Brighton residents, whether that be at our artist Private Views, our Art Yard Sale, or at our monthly Kids Club.

In November, we welcomed a different kind of art lover into the gallery – Year 6 pupils from Windlesham School. Around 30 10-11 year old students from the school were taken on Enter Gallery’s Street Art Tour with local artist, Req, and were then treated to a tour of the gallery.

If you’re looking for fun things to do in Brighton with kids that encourage creative expression, this type of tour could be perfect for you. Here’s a little more information about Windlesham School’s arty day out at Enter Gallery…

Street Life

The first order of events was a tour of local street art with Req – an artist who has been a big name on the Brighton graffiti scene since the 1980s.

Req took the children around some of the city’s most impressive murals and hidden street art, sharing stories behind the works, and information about the artists.

The children were full of questions about the different techniques used by the artists to create their works.

Favourite Picks

Next, the kids were given a tour of the gallery, where our resident Art Advisor, Tim, introduced them to the work of Enter Gallery’s artists, and the different artistic styles that each artist explores. Tim tells us:

“It was fun to give the children a little background on the different artists and artistic styles out there and to show them that art is a viable career. We also chatted about how pieces were created and hand-finished, which hopefully gave them inspiration to try different techniques in their own art.”



Next, the children were encouraged by their art teacher to pick out pieces from the walls of the gallery that they particularly liked, and to sketch out their own versions.

Charlotte Rose’s cartoon characters were a hot favourite, as were our selection of skateboards, created by Magnus Gjoen and local artist, Lee Eelus.



The tour proved a fun day out for all, and we like to think that Enter Gallery has played a small role in inspiring the next generation of Brighton artists!

Enter Gallery’s street art tour runs on Wednesday and Saturdays. You can book here, or, if you’d like to arrange a group tour for a different day, email and we’ll get you booked in.
