LEARNING

Schools, Students and Teachers

SCHOOLS and COLLEGES

We deliver tours and workshops tailoured to the specific learning needs of groups from Nurseries, Primary and Secondary Schools and Colleges. These tours encourage imagination and creativity whilst exploring the artwork in our current exhibition.

Groups who have pre-booked will receive a tour exploring certain aspects of the exhibition, including links to cross-curricular learning where possible.

 

Dates and times for these visits can be discussed when booking.  These activities are free of charge, unless otherwise stated.

 

 

GROUP VISITS

 

Grundy welcomes group visits and there are various two main ways in which you can visit the gallery as a group; for free, or to book a private tour with our Curatorial or Engagement team.

 

Self-led group visits to Grundy are free but it is important that groups of 10 or more book their visit in advance so that we can accommodate your group. To book a group visit please call +44 (0)1253 478170 or email grundyartgallery@blackpool.gov.uk

 

The maximum group size for self-led visits is 60 people. If you are planning to visit the Grundy in a large group, please divide into smaller groups of 20 for your visit and contact the gallery prior to your arrival.

 


 Teachers

Grundy Art Gallery has formed a networking opportunity for Primary School Teachers from Blackpool and the Fylde Coast. The forum meetings take place every two months at the gallery.

Teachers can openly discuss any challenges or highlights of the art curriculum. Grundy’s Education Officer can inform the teachers of any exciting opportunities coming up, offer support and advice, introduce new artists to work with and study in class. Teachers can also bring along examples of ‘good’ school art and ask for ideas on their future projects.

If you would like to join the forum please contact the gallery. 

 

 

UNIVERSITIES

Grundy provides regular lectures at Blackpool and Fylde College on the Higher Education Professional Practice module which looks to progress understanding of the cultural sector and the students role within it.

 

Grundy also offers free tours of the current exhibitions.
