Early years

Welcome to Sharing Practice

With c.800 members in the UK and around the world, the Engage team is lucky to be in regular contact with colleagues working in gallery and visual arts education who are leading the way with fascinating and diverse practice in a great variety of areas.

In order to share this learning with the wider sector, and promote our members’ work, we have invited members to present examples of their practice that fit within a set theme. These practice case studies are available to both members and non-members alike.

In May 2018, members were invited to respond to the the the theme ‘Early years’. In response, four organisations submitted case studies that looked at a range of Early Years programmes, from weekly baby programmes and early childhood education and care ground to artist-led education programme in schools.

In December 2019, we added the case study Hands Find Form, which looks at a collaborative project involving Earlham Nursery School and the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.
