Manchester Art Gallery

Schools and colleges

See beyond the obvious

Manchester Art Gallery is home to the city’s world-class collection, which spans six centuries of fine art, design, craft, photography and fashion. The gallery holds many opportunities to support your school or college curriculum, often in surprising ways. We work with artists, designers, writers and experienced educators to explore art, craft and design, creative writing, critical thinking and historical enquiry. Using our exhibitions and collections, we encourage you, your pupils and students to investigate, question, take notice, play, share stories, build on the ideas of others and see beyond the obvious.
