Developing creativity, visual literacy, thinking and communication skills through the arts

Collaboration & Partnership

Oriel Davies’ exhibitions and artists’ projects provide a diverse and inspiring resource for supporting learning across the curriculum. Our most successful projects with schools and colleges are developed in partnership with teachers and pupils. We particularly welcome approaches from teachers with an idea they’d like to pursue with us, or who would like to explore how future teaching could benefit from using our exhibitions and artists’ skills to support their schemes of work in new and exciting ways. Such projects could combine exhibition visits, artist-led workshops, outreach activities at school or other sites, and even opportunities to take part in exhibitions at the gallery.
