The Trust received a grant from the Ernest Cook Trust, from May 2015 to April 2016, to design and lead a programme of support for teachers and schools. We are indebted to their support as we are now able to offer new and exciting opportunities. These specialist events enable teachers to enjoy looking, thinking and speaking about modern and contemporary art, feeling inspired with new skills and ideas to share with their students and schools.

Jamie will also lead an interactive workshop ‘But I Can’t Draw’ to explore thinking through drawing.
