Yorkshire Art & Design Teachers’ Regional Network (YARN)

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.

For further information contact Maria Keki – maria_keki@yahoo.co.uk / 07504854684

Meetings are held in the Studio learning room at York Art Gallery from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival. Please RSVP to gaby.lees@ymt.org.uk and maria_keki@yahoo.co.uk.

Each meeting provides:

  • an opportunity to consider important arts issues
  • support for arts & craft teaching
  • engagement with York’s gallery and museum collections.

Some meetings will include a practical workshop element where teachers can develop new practical skills. Last year YARN meetings included workshops with painter Tom Woods and ceramic artist Beccy Ridsdel.
