The Saatchi Gallery is specifically geared towards introducing a younger audience of art students and enthusiasts to work at the cutting edge of contemporary art. The facilities - at the Gallery, via the website and in the Gallery classroom for schools - endeavor to ensure that teachers receive the best on-site and outreach support possible for their students.
Our Teachers' Evenings offer a private view of the current exhibition with a curatorial tour and a drink. The evenings are a fantastic opportunity to become familiar with our exhibitions and obtain ideas for your own teaching. You can also find out more about our education programme, and how we can tailor talks and workshops to suit different groups and learner needs.
Teachers' Evenings run from 6:30pm-8:30pm, with a guided tour commencing at 7pm. Our next Teachers' Evening will be for the exhibition Known Unknowns. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on dates and how to book a place.
ADMISSION TO THE GALLERY IS FREE
Group visits to the gallery are free, with free guided tours provided if booked via the Education Department. To download a booking form for school visits and tours click here.

RainStations and The Worldwide Tribe come together in collaborating with artists whose work focuses on rain. The exhibition, which will showcase a series of warm tone photographs, aims to highlight the plight and raise awareness of the Refugees in the Pikpa Camp on Lesvos.
The Worldwide Tribe, whose humanitarian work is led by Jaz Oâ€™Hara, supports refugees around the world. The RainStations Foundation work focuses on rain. Having visited the Pikpa Camp, both wish to support the camp in enabling a rainwater harvesting system to be installed on the site.
"Working together to maintain our garden is an important part of daily life at Pikpa. Gardening provides a vehicle of cultural and educational sharing as well as a feeling of dignity, control and family life for our residents. The opportunity to plant, grow and harvest vegetables or herbs as well as work together have enabled us to either engage residents existing skills, build new ones or provide a level of psycho-social support and integration" Pikpa
Maria Zachariades from the RainStations Foundation and Vassilis Mathioudakis, a photojournalist from Athens, have curated 23 photographs for â€˜On Rainâ€™. Each photographer involved in the exhibition have generously donated their work to this project.
All photographs have been created as salt prints by Craig Austin at Vimpt. Vimpt combines techniques developed by William Fox Talbot in the 1830â€™s, with the highest quality handmade French paper and modern digital negatives to produce unique prints.
As part of 'On rain' a video installation entitled "One Day, I Will Stop Crying" by artist Jade Chorkularb will be showing in the Education Room on the LG floor from Feb 7th-17th. This video installation was inspired by interviews with refugees talking about their rain at the Pikpa Camp and recordings of refugees singing.
RainStations invite you during this exhibition to share your rain on Instagram with hashtag 'on_RAin'.
