Art School

Art School is a project founded by artist, curator and consultant Jennie Guy. It focuses on establishing new interfaces between contemporary art and sites of education. Art School is invested in a longer-term enquiry into pedagogical shifts in education through the means of art.

Please get in touch anytime if you wish to discuss potential collaborations.

Art School takes place as a series of independent projects, exhibitions, workshop and residency programmes, bringing active contemporary artists into educational systems to inspire and expand their teachings. Art School has worked on many projects including:

The Masterplan
