How you can help

Visit galleries as a family and encourage older students to visit independently or join workshops at some of the major galleries, including Tate, The National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Hayward Gallery and The Courtauld.  See websites for details. Build up a store of art materials at home and encourage drawing in their/your spare time.
