Artist-led workshops at Tate Britain for students from all special educational needs and disabilities settings and pupil referral units

Join our artist-led workshops for students from all Special Educational Needs and Disabilities settings and Pupil Referral Units.

As part of the Aspire programme and for this academic year only, all workshops at Tate Britain will reflect on and respond to the work of John Constable through the lens of contemporary artists practice. Workshops are designed to encourage students to engage with art, culture and ideas and share their thoughts, aspirations and opinions in unique and diverse ways.

Purchased by Tate with assistance from the National Lottery through the National Lottery Heritage Fund, The Manton Foundation, Art Fund (with a contribution from the Wolfson Foundation) and Tate Members in partnership with Amgueddfa Cymru- National Museum Wales, Colchester and Ipswich Museum Service, National Galleries of Scotland, and The Salisbury Museum. 2013

In the unique setting of Tate Britain workshops are led by artists who work at Tate over the course of a year and give students and teachers the opportunity to encounter historical, modern and contemporary artwork together. All sessions are tailored to accommodate your group’s particular requirements. By engaging in a series of practical and gallery-based activities, students are made to feel welcome, unhurried and inspired.

We recommend group sizes of up to ten depending on the needs of the group, supported by appropriate staffing ratios from the visiting organisation. An essential requirement for staff accessing SEND provision is to complete and return a questionnaire before visiting.
