Join us for a full-day of inspiring talks, discussions and practical art making workshops exploring how creativity can support learning across the curriculum.

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.

Speakers will include artist, arts advocate and Royal Academician Bob and Roberta Smith; independent arts educator, consultant and writer Ghislaine Kenyon, and Director of Learning and Collections at the Royal Academy, Rebecca Lyons.

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 primary school 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.
