Everyone has something to learn from a visit to Quay Arts
Quay Arts is an educational resource that provides a unique opportunity for groups to learn in a stimulating gallery environment. We welcome visits from schools, colleges, community groups and other organisations, and can provide tours and artist-led workshops related to our current exhibitions.
School trips warmly welcomed
Self-directed visits to our galleries are always welcome, but please let us know about your visit in advance to make sure we are not running a school workshop in the gallery at the same time. You will find details of current and forthcoming exhibitions here. If you have any further questions, please contact our visual arts manager, Ian Whitmore on 01983 822490.
Artist Educators available by the hour
Workshops exploring any of the exhibition themes in our galleries can be delivered by our team of Artist Educators. Sessions for schools and community groups can be held at Quay Arts, Jubilee Stores or in school and a typical two-hour workshop costs £100 depending on group size and materials. A whole day costs around £200 plus materials.
Young Quay for sixth formers

Practical studio-based sessions are combined with hands on introduction to the curatorial process and occasional field trips.
