The scheme allows up to four children to go free with any adult ticket. When they come to the gallery, children can take part in a new Family Trail - #Everyoneisanartist. The trail encourages visitors to think of themselves as artists and practice their skills as they explore the gallery. For more information follow @jerwoodgallery on Twitter and visit
