Our innovative learning activities will continue through a programme of outreach activities, while Leeds Art Gallery is closed for roof repairs in 2016.
For all learning enquiries, please get in touch with our Learning and Access Officer (see the 'Contact' tab above).
Work with practising artists
What kind of themes do our workshops and learning activities explore?
When Leeds Art Gallery opened, the people of Leeds made a brave decision: the city would only collect contemporary art. Now, it’s just that the ‘new’ art grew old.
We pose questions such as: What does a colour taste like? What conversation is going on there? Can anyone be an artist?
The Take One Picture Project
Artworks and objects from Leeds Art Gallery were used as inspirations for Key Stage 2 pupils to create their own largescale works, which were later exhibited.
“I learnt a picture tells a story if you look closely”, KS2 pupil.
