We are an official Artsmark Partner and our free service shows schools how to do better quality art with their children in line with the 7 Artsmark Quality Principles. We provide a free staff development workshop and provide school with a Help DVD that has over 1300 children's pictures from previous projects on it plus huge amounts of help and guidance that schools can keep. We can show both traditional art and also have a specialist Street Art service which is in huge demand as schools tell us that this really engages the children in art and stimulates their interest in art. Following our workshop each child produces a piece of artwork and we collect, label and frame each piece. We then return to school on an agreed date and turn the hall into an Art Gallery for the day, setting up all the children's framed artwork on our special display boards so that children and parent can see their artwork in it's authentic setting and have a fantastic finale to their project. The exhibition has a major effect on children's self esteem. School can raise money if they wish to by selling the pictures to parents - take up rates are very high.

Welcome to FACT! An art gallery at the heart of Liverpool that plays around with new ways of exploring everything artistic through technology and film. In our exhibition "You Feel Me", you and your students will explore the depths of our galleries as adventurers, understanding more about technology, art, race and the things that make us who we are. Through loads of VR (Virtual Reality) experiences, you'll find yourself in Space, or in the Wild West, stretching the boundaries of Real Life and Virtual Life. Find a civilisation created by huge creatures, and much more at FACT this Autumn. "You Feel Me" opens Thursday the 31st of October, and we are booking tours for the rest of the year.
  • The Tour includes a specifically tailored workshop where pupils will explore the themes of the exhibition and strengthen the curricular areas you are working with in the classroom.
  • We can drop by your school with our VR Headsets to deliver a taster session once you've booked your tour!
ALL FOR FREE! Looking forward to having you at FACT. Carlos Marfil - Learning Team

Ideas Depot is a new display that has been co-curated with primary school teachers across the city. Discover major works from the Tate collection by artists including Anya Gallaccio, ​Salvador Dalí and Chris Ofili. Central to this display is a belief that art plays a meaningful part in people’s day-to-day lives and intellectual curiosity. Through art we can always learn something new – about history, the world and our place in it. Works will be swapped in and out as the primary schools in residence pick and choose new ones from the art stores and develop links to the primary curriculum. The display has developed alongside a joint research project with Edge Hill University's Faculty of Education, focused on developing a 'schools in residence' programme.
