Work with one of our Artists

Our workshops for schools and colleges are led by our experienced team of Associate Artists. They are tailored for primary, secondary, special needs and further education students and to the needs and interests of your group.

Exploring Art Workshops

Our artists can work alongside you and your students to explore the galleries and to reflect and share responses through discussion and group activities. The artist will also support your group to respond in a creative, hands-on activity within our Learning Studio.

We can offer workshops to support students to think, speak and write creatively, workshops with targeted groups to increase confidence and give students opportunities to shine, and with groups working towards Arts Award.

Literacy through Art Workshops

You asked. We responded - by creating a series of activities to support literacy and communication skills using our exhibitions as a stimulus. Activities support speaking and listening skills, help students share opinions and develop creative writing in response. Can be adapted to all key stages.

Behind the Scenes

A special opportunity to take a look behind the scenes at Nottingham Contemporary as we prepare for our new exhibition. Peek through windows and explore our building, then get hands on with an Artist–led workshop and design your own exhibition
