It has given me a huge amount of ideas to use, develop, recreate and introduce within my classroom for all year groups.

A week-long opportunity to actively reflect on current connections between contemporary practice and art education.

This five-day school is framed by the particular practice of an artist and their art form where it intersects with teaching practice and connects to Tate’s collection and exhibitions. Each year a new programme of practical and discussion-based workshops, curators’ talks and artist interventions, explore the possibilities for using Tate Modern as an exceptional resource for teachers. You are invited to contribute to an evolving conversation around new approaches to teaching and learning in the classroom.

The Summer School attracts an exciting group of teachers and artists from around the world to create a dynamic and memorable learning experience. Your classroom may never be the same again!
