Using your ideas and the artworks at Tate as inspiration, join us in making  a collective mural honouring black artists throughout history, and learn more about black art while you’re creating.

You don’t have to be an artist to join in, just come along and join in!

About 8–14’s Studio

8–14’s Studio is where you can work alongside a range of artists in different disciplines, making collective art-works with other 8-14 year olds and their families.

Each artist who works with the 8-14’s Studio brings a theme, materials and ideas inspired by their own artwork.

Drop in anytime between 12-5pm every third Saturday of the month at Tate Modern.
