We are a charity who works with teachers and young people to develop confidence and skills by looking, thinking and speaking about art. Our aim is to provide a greater understanding and enjoyment of the culture of our age. We encourage everyone to speak amongst themselves and in public about the visual world, raising their aspirations and increasing their knowledge.
The Roche Court Educational Trust (RCET) is based at the New Art Centre sculpture park and gallery. Our programme is led by experts and supported by artists who exhibit at Roche Court and who are very generous with their time.
We organise a programme of tours, lectures, discussions and workshops, all of which are open to students and teachers.
The Charitable Trust was founded in 2005 and continues to grow. It provides a valuable educational resource on a regional, national and international basis.
The impact you had on our students engagement with contemporary art was outstanding. Your use of open questioning and age specific information really helped ensure the student left with a much more in-depth understanding of artist work and their intentions.
