Our artist-led schools workshops take place in the gallery, where students will encounter artwork alongside their teachers and artists. The workshops are designed to encourage students to engage with art and contemporary culture and share their thoughts and ideas in unique and diverse ways. The workshops are led by contemporary artists who are in residence at Tate during the year.

We take a radical approach to engagement, inviting students to learn about art through being in a conversation with each other, artists and artworks within the public gallery space. These conversations will be different and unpredictable but are always designed to encourage individuals to ask questions and form opinions about art and practice.

Our 2017–18 workshop artists-in-residence are Liv Wynter, Raju Rage, Xana and Yemi Awosile.
