Book your ticket here

We are kicking off the new series of meetings (only one per term) with a session packed with practical art tips and activities to inspire you in the classroom all based in the Laing’s new art studio space.

 Traci Cain, Art Co-ordinator at Western Community Primary School, will be leading a practical art workshop for you all to get involved in! Traci will share ideas on how to make a collaborative piece using print making techniques inspired by the work of Max Ernst. Definitely one to use back at school with your class.  

 The fantastic Thought Foundation will be joining us to share their SCHOOL OF THOUGHT workshops which are devised to explain and expand upon their exhibitions and displays.

 Jane Adamson from Knetic Education will be sharing project which she ran with Bede Academy. Knetic Education is a collective of teachers working together to provide support for schools based in the North East of England. They have a vast range of classroom, management and school improvement experience.

Jennie Lambert from Sunderland Museums will be telling us all about their upcoming programme to run alongside an exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci's drawings.

 ….and lots more making and sharing ideas to use in the classroom.
