About the Business

Art and art galleries go hand in hand, but what about other school subjects: can an art gallery be used as inspiration and an effective resource to support teaching and learning across the curriculum? We are part way through a project with The New Art Gallery in Walsall that tells us it can.

We approached the gallery, which sits a mile from our doorstep, with a wish to make better use of what is a fantastic facility. We weren't sure, exactly, what we wanted to do but we did know that the intermittent and isolated visits to the space by various school groups was only scratching the surface.

Zoe Renilson, Head of Education, welcomed our interest and was more than receptive to the (vague!) idea of developing a relationship between the school and gallery. Conversations took place at both venues, with teachers becoming involved - some tentatively others brimming with enthusiasm, and an idea began to take shape.
