Calling all 8–14s year olds and their families! 

Are you interested in creating alongside an artist? Are you curious about what happens inside an artist studio? 

Artist Matt Shaw brings his studio to Tate and invites you to join him in improvising with a range of materials to see how you can inspire change and transformation. There are no rules, just bring your curiosity and see what happens! 

About 8–14 Studio

8–14’s Studio is a space where you can work with a professional artist making shared artwork alongside other 8–14s year olds. Each artist works with a theme inspired by their practice so you can explore different ways of working with every different artist who visits the Studio.

Drop in and explore different creative ideas and materials every third Saturday of the month at Tate Modern.
