Plan your visit
If you are new to visiting galleries, museums and cultural venues with a school group, these tips may be useful for you.
Turbo boost your primary curriculum
The arts are education’s secret weapon — a transferable turbo boost that fires across the whole curriculum!
Extend the experience

Last year Turner Contemporary, Engage, and the Young Art Leaders of Palm Bay Primary created fantastic new Children’s Art Week activity cards, which explore Looking, Discussing, Making and Exhibiting.
With activities for individuals, pairs and groups, follow on ideas for the classroom or at home, and useful resources to explore online, these are designed to help you make the most of your visit to any Children’s Art Week setting, particularly if you are a teacher, educator, parent or carer.
Children’s Art Week is run by Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education, and supported in 2019 by the Arts Society, The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust and The Kirby Laing Foundation.
