Yorkshire Art & Design Teachers’ Regional Network (YARN)
The Yorkshire Art and Design Teachers Network meet each half term at York Art Gallery. Teachers are welcome from all phases and meetings are an opportunity to share good practice, discuss joint and local initiatives and update on issues affecting art and art education. Bring your ideas, skills and colleagues for a professional and social networking opportunity.

ARTiculation Discovery Day at York Art Gallery
Designed to engage students with visual art, students will discover how individual artworks act as a catalyst for wider critical thinking, working together using a range of sources (including articles, letters and interviews) to explore ideas and carry out research. By the end of the day, students will be able to present their findings to a panel of curators and academics. Click here to find out more.
