OLIVE group

Gasworks invited schools to attend introductory activities based around the group exhibition Holiday in.

Through the visits, participating schools were able to make links between the exhibition and classroom studies in areas such as ‘journey and tourism’, ‘private and public places’ and ‘viewpoints and landscape’. These subjects were explored through stimulating discussion and relevant activities such as mapping, monoprinting and shadow installation.

As part of the school visit, Gasworks provided a teachers pack responding to the national curriculum for primary and secondary schools, which includes information about the exhibition, images of the works, and suggested follow up activities for the classroom. The school visits were designed and led by practicing artist and freelance educator Abigail Hunt.
