Gerald Moore Gallery is very proud of its contribution to the local community - through its free outreach programme many primary and senior school children experience art workshops within the gallery every year and learn new art skills centred around our exhibitions.
In December 2018 and Januray 2019, 48 students from Year 10 and 11 at St Thomas More Catholic Comprehensive, Eltham were invited to a free printing session and tour of our current print exhibition Between the Lines. They looked at 'Natural Forms' in their work and trialled out lino and relief printing.
In January - February 2019, 10 students from Year 12 and 13 at Darrick Wood are taking part in a Life Drawing project. This is funded by Bromley Arts Society and supported by the Gerald Moore Gallery. The aim is to offer a new experience and to improve the students life drawing skills over 6 weeks as they learn new techniques within a gallery setting.
In February 2019, 10 students from Year 10 at St Thomas More Catholic Comprehensive, Eltham will trial out a photogram workshop and make their own photos without the use of a camera inspired by Cornelia Parker's current exhibition at the gallery One Day This Glass Will Break.
