A reminder of the freedom and openness art can bring to the learning experience.
Art and Language study day participant 2012

The Art & study day series has been developed to support your classroom practice and to open up a shared discussion on how art can underpin the imagination and critical thinking of your students.

While taking various and numerous forms; that of tour, practical activity, lecture, debate or performance, a signature characteristic of these day-long sessions is the extended time spent with the artwork on display. Whether looking through the lens of a specific audience group, exploring artists’ tendency towards collecting and collating or considering how meaning might be made or communicated, each session aims to support and extend classroom practice.

These day long sessions offer:

  • Creative, practical and educational strategies to meet the learning needs of individuals
  • Methods for active engagement with the building and the collection as a resource for teaching and learning to support you to bring your group to Tate
  • A diverse range of materials and approaches designed to support you to enable young people to engage with art, explore ideas and generate dialogue 
  • Examples of contemporary practice that might resonate with young people and their everyday lives
  • Ways to extend and develop the opportunities afforded by the study day back in the classroom.


3 for 2 offer

Schools booking two study days will receive a third free place to attend a session for any member of staff.
