School Workshops

We believe that learning does not just take place in the classroom, it happens everywhere.

That’s why we offer a diverse programme of gallery activities for schools that offer young people the unique opportunity to engage with original artworks. This is a unique opportunity for schools, with activities ranging from exhibition workshops, talks and tours.
