Autumn Programme for Schools
The Photographers’ Gallery is committed to engaging pupils in looking at, thinking about, discussing and making photography in ways that best suit each school’s learning plans, timetable and health and safety procedures.
We offer 60-minute visits to groups of up to 34 pupils (including staff) on Mondays between 10.00 –16.00. School and College visits include a brief introduction to the Gallery, the exhibitions on the 2nd, 4th and 5th floors and a warm up exercise to get pupils engaged in looking and discussing. Please note: the Gallery is currently closed to visitors on Mondays, so you will have exclusive access to our spaces.
£100 per visit
We understand that school trips may not be possible at present, so we are offering the following alternative activities and resources:
Camera Obscura Workshop
Our popular camera obscura workshop is now available as a taught, online session. This photographer-led, 60-minute session will introduce pupils to the camera obscura and take them through a step-by-step process of making their own portable camera obscura. Each school will receive up to 32 camera obscura kits in advance.
£150 per session
Creative Careers Workshop
This session aims to introduce students to the myriad of career options related to photography – from assistant to photographer, editor to stylist, teacher to retoucher. Over 60 minutes participants will take part in a series of interactive, discussion-based activities led by the education team at TPG. By the end of the workshop, pupils will have gained an understanding of where their photography knowledge can be applied or developed, as well as a range of opportunities on offer beyond the classroom.
£100 per session
Virtual Exhibition Pack
From Here to Eternity: Sunil Gupta. A retrospective.
An exhibition pack for From Here to Eternity - Sunil Gupta is available as a downloadable resource for schools unable to make visits to The Photographers’ Gallery. The aim of the resource is to engage pupils with a selection of work and themes in the exhibition. Each pack contains a selection of medium-resolution images with discussion points for use in the classroom, a video introduction for pupils to the exhibition by the artist, and a short assignment.
