Art on Tour Schools Outreach Programme

What is ‘Art on Tour’?

Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is very excited to launch the 2020 ‘Art on Tour’ project, aiming to bring more art to more people in more places. The project encompasses a touring exhibition programme, community engagement events, and a Swindon schools programme.

The ‘Art on Tour’ Schools Programme is a fully-funded eight month art education outreach project, free to Swindon schools. The project runs from February to the end of September 2020. We are looking to work with partner schools over an extended period to offer a series of curriculum-linked art engagement activities. All activities take place on the school site, with the exception of the final Swindon MAG exhibition.

How does it work?

The full package offered to schools is below. We recognise that not all settings will have the time or capacity to be involved with all stages of the project, so this acts as a menu of options which schools can choose from. These elements can happen at any time between February and September.

1. Pop-up gallery – Mr Bomford’s Travelling Imaginarium!

2. Kick-stARTer workshop – engaging with the pop-up gallery

3. CPD training for staff and teaching resources

4. Cross-curricular workshop – using art as a springboard

5. Class creative project

6. Artist workshop – students work with a local artist

7. People’s Gallery Exhibition – display of students’ work 8. Swindon Museum and Art Gallery Flagship Exhibition
