We are offering schools, colleges and community groups the opportunity to tour one of the studio sites, along with an artists/curators introduction to particular exhibitions that are running in either the ASC Gallery or one of the three project spaces.
Along with this there is the possibility to arrange visits to specific Artists studios to illustrate a working environment with its varied creative and practical demands.With this is the possibility of having small creative workshops that could be tailored around key themes within artists work.
ASC Gallery is a contemporary arts space in a modernist building in SE17, south London. It hosts five main exhibitions a year with smaller events, talks, performances and offsite projects. Some of the galleries exhibitions link with local groups to deliver workshops with artists.
