Teen Access Programme 2015
April/May 2015

We are inviting secondary schools to get involved in an exciting youth access programme in the Crawford Art Gallery. Grant-aided by the National Lottery, this pilot programme for teens is free of charge.

The programme provides an opportunity for young people to explore the gallery with a professional visual artist, developing creative responses to exhibition work over a set of two initial workshops.

The aim of the project is to introduce the gallery as a cultural resource and to provide teens within our community some tools, time, technical support and confidence to respond to the building and exhibitions.

There is huge potential for cross curricular linkage in our changing programme of exhibitions; including works across a spectrum of art practices, historic to contemporary, works from the national collection and curated exhibitions.   

We are offering workshop sessions on both Wednesdays and Thursdays, beginning February 2015. §  Initial workshops in February and March will focus on sculpture.   

Workshops in April and May will focus on print making.
