You will also have the opportunity to hear from the visual arts department from Coventry University, who will share informed insight into how teachers can support students with developing their art portfolio as they ready themselves for applying to higher education.

Local Schools

Beyond our workshops we want you to see us as a resource to support your students’ education and enhance your school’s cultural capital. Over the years Rugby Art Gallery and Museum has worked

with schools on many projects. Occasionally we look for school groups who might be interested in partnering with us on a new project or trial. We have judged competitions and talked at careers days. Please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can work together and support your projects.

Teacher Open Evenings

Our open evenings provide an excellent networking opportunity and provide insight into our forthcoming exhibitions programme, workshops and events. Enjoy a behind the scenes tour of our stores and speak to the team about how we can support your projects.  Contact us if you would like to be informed of upcoming open evenings.
