Get out your best china, plump up the cushions, and vacuum the living room - Art on Tour is coming to yours for tea! And they're bringing Swindon's nationally significant modern art collection with them! Just for you! From L.S Lowry to Lucian Freud, and Grayson Perry to Henry Moore, they're proud to be using the Art on Tour programme to bring our awesome art collection to more people in more places.

Launched in late 2019, Art on Tour was originally conceived as a Swindon-wide outreach programme, with an extensive schools learning offer, community engagement events, and an off-site exhibitions programme. Sadly, like everyone else, the Art on Tour team have needed to consider alternative ways to engage communities and have put their previous plans on-hold. BUT, theyare not deterred in their mission to bring the Swindon Art Collection to all four corners of the globe! The team have flexed their creative muscles and GONE DIGITAL! This means that you can explore and engage with the Collection, and get involved, from the comfort of your own sofa!

Make use of the daily Art Burst children’s resources to keep little hands and minds occupied! Use the daily Art Challenges to entertain all the family! Be amazed by the Art Snap podcasts - the best that art history has to offer, in a nutshell! Explore inspiring online galleries! Be part of the conversation with the Art on Tour blog! Get involved by creating your own masterpieces and see them displayed in the Art on Tour virtual gallery! Join the Art on Tour tribe on Facebook and Instagram and get your daily dose of all things art!
