"York Art Gallery contains important works of art in a newly refurbished gallery that is a great space for learning. Children learn to engage with art at a deeper level than simply gazing at paintings.
"The staff are enthusiastic and the sessions they lead are well thought through. Pupils will leave the Gallery enlightened, enthused and motivated about art." Sandford Award judge, 2011.
York Art Gallery, York Castle Museum and the Yorkshire Museum & Gardens have all been awarded the Sandford Award for Heritage Education.
