    Three core questions The three core questions that the Family Learning team at Manchester Art Gallery would like this evaluation to address are: 1. What learning takes place in the Clore Art Studio and how can we optimise this learning environment in the future? 2. Which audience or age group benefit the most from this space and how can we talk about their experiences? 3. What is the role of the artist and the volunteer in facilitating the space? In order to address each of these questions members of the Manchester Metropolitan University evaluation team gathered qualitative data that included observations including filmed documentation of children, families, young adults, teachers, members of the Family Learning Team and volunteers when engaged with/in the Clore Art Studio Space. Additionally interviews were undertaken with the Family Learning Manager, volunteers, parents, teachers, the artists that helped to design the Studio space and the artists that facilitated the space across the weekends. The evaluation team also had access to reflective diaries that were regularly completed by the volunteers and the Gallery’s own archives of film and photographs.
