Creative Schools Cluster Meeting and Exhibition Tour: Autumn 2019

The Autumn Creative Schools Cluster session for teachers will be held at The Granary Gallery on Thursday 14 November 2019 from 5-6.30pm. All teachers, colleagues and school governors interested in developing their pupil's cultural education are welcome to attend.
 
During the session we will enjoy a tour of our new autumn exhibition Wilhelmina Barns-Graham: Inspirational Journeys led by Maria Chester from Berwick Educational Association. Maria has been leading excellent and accessible public tours and lectures for some of our recent exhibitions. This will be her first tour especially for teachers and school colleagues in Berwick but places are limited so please email to reserve your place.
 
Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004) was a Scottish painter and worked in St Ives after moving there from Edinburgh in 1940. Her paintings, alongside those of her contemporaries that comprise the St Ives School, contributed greatly to the development of Modernist British painting in the mid to late twentieth century.
 
Inspirational Journeys will be open from 26 October 2019 until 23 February 2020 and there will be a limited number of artist-led workshops available to schools who visit the exhibition with their pupils. The session is also an opportunity to meet other teachers and find out about arts opportunities for your pupils. Please contact Val Tobiass, Learning and Engagement Co-ordinator to reserve your place so we can organise seating and refreshments.
 
Creative Schools Cluster meetings are termly meetings that are open to all school teachers and colleagues interested in working with cultural organisations that offer excellent creative learning opportunities for schools. For more information please see here.
