This conference invites primary school teachers to discuss the importance of creativity in learning and to consider approaches to embedding creative engagement in the classroom.

Join us for a full-day of inspiring practical art making workshops, talks, discussions and networking opportunities at the Royal Academy to explore how creativity can support learning in the curriculum.

Who should attend this conference?
This conference is designed for teachers, educators, artists and museum professionals who are interested in learning more about how we use art to enrich learning and deepen skills such as: creative thinking, problem-solving, resilience, building confidence, spatial awareness and risk taking. We will discuss ways we engage learners through the RA Collection and our temporary exhibitions, and how you can too. Attendees will explore their own creativity and share ideas and experiences while taking part and contributing to talks, discussions and practical workshops.
