Youngsters were able to explore their arty side and discovered the works of Turner Prize artist Richard Long in a school trip to Houghton Hall.
Children from Fairstead Primary School, in King's Lynn, walked through the Wilderness Dreaming sculpture to learn about the materials used.
Year six teacher Lisa King said children are inspired and excited by real-life experiences, adding: 'The children absolutely loved the trip, they were amazed by what they saw. We have carried out quite a bit of work in the lead up to the trip and so for them to actually see the sculptures, it brought their work to life.
'It's not just something they have seen in a book, it personalises the experience and so give it meaning to them as an individual.'
Part of the Heritage Lottery-funded BeLong project, organisers have said the workshops are a gateway to heritage and the arts for young people.
