Learning at NAE


At New Art Exchange we believe that arts and culture make an invaluable contribution to the education and personal development of young people.

Schools and other education providers are warmly welcomed to the venue and invited to take part in a lively programme of activities that has relevance to the National Curriculum but also extends beyond it.

As well as enjoying the visual stimulus of our inspiring exhibitions, students in school, Further/Higher education and other settings are able to acquire new art skills, explore the histories of diverse cultures, debate issues relating to social justice and learn about the geography of the world.

Our regular Learning Newsletter will be avaliable soon, please check back for details shortly. Why not join us to celebrate the launch of the new programme, see our exhibitions, and meet the new Learning Team? Learning Programme Launch, 3 October 2019, 4pm - 6pm.

Many of the exhibitions at NAE have a strong human geography element. Therefore we're encouraging any geography teachers to come along to our cARTography event to join us to explore ways of using maps and art to deliver the geography curriculum in the gallery.

If you are a teacher looking for more information about the connections the exhibitions have with the National Curriculum, you can find our latest notes for our upcoming season Mimesis: African Soldier available to download below.
