Artist-led workshops for schools

Artist-led workshops at Tate Modern for students and teachers, encouraging engagement with art, artists and ideas

Our artist-led schools workshops take place in the gallery, where students will encounter artwork and artists’ practice alongside their teachers. The workshops are designed to encourage students to engage with art, culture and ideas and voice their thoughts, aspirations and opinions in unique and diverse ways. Workshops are led by contemporary artists who work at Tate over the course of a year.

We take a radical approach to engagement, inviting students to learn about themselves and others through being with art within the public gallery space. These conversations will be different and unpredictable but are always designed to encourage individuals to ask questions, form opinions and take ownership of the gallery.​

Led by an artist in response to the collection, workshops are inclusive and open to all.

Important information:

There are three workshops in each time slot per day (strict maximum of 16 students per group).

Timeslots are 10.30–12.00 and 13.00–14.30.
