Resources for Teachers


If you are new to visiting galleries, museums and cultural venues with a school group, these tips may be useful for you. Read more >>

The arts are education’s secret weapon – a transferable turbo boost that fires across the whole curriculum! 

A well-planned visit to a cultural venue that allows children to question what they see, and respond with their own making, is a powerful way to build learning power.

For our experiences to really bed down and become powerful learning, we need to reflect and build upon them.

Whatever your pupils discover during your visit can be taken to a deeper level and expanded back in the classroom.

Last year Turner Contemporary, Engage, and the Young Art Leaders of Palm Bay Primary created fantastic new Children’s Art Week activity cards, which explore Looking, Discussing, Making and Exhibiting.

With activities for individuals, pairs and groups, follow on ideas for the classroom or at home, and useful resources to explore online, these are designed to help you make the most of your visit to any Children’s Art Week setting, particularly if you are a teacher, educator, parent or carer.
