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.
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.

Mask Art Prize 2018
'Early 21st Century Young African Artists'
Dec 5th 2018 - Jan 12th 2019
Visual Art Category 15- 25 y/o: 1st PRIZE. Cynthia Ngunjiri, 23. Untitled, Digital Collage
This is a group exhibition of 20 young artists from Kenya who emerged through the renowned MASK Prize Creativity Competition for Young People in Africa. The exhibition showcases prints of digital art, collages, photographs, drawings, and paintings.
Arts have been limited in schools in Africa. This has created significant inequality in art participation and art production for the majority of young people. However, with the help of the MASK Prize, which provides opportunities for all young Africans to participate in the arts regardless of ability or income, the creativity of young people thrives to inspire and amaze. This exhibition curated by the Founder of MASK Prize artist Alla Tkachuk hopes to inform, educate and engage audiences both in Africa and in the West.
MASK Prize was pioneered in 2013 by a UK education charity MASK (Mobile Art School in Kenya, No 1128734) to strengthens creativity and innovation of young Africans and improve their employability and leadership. Please donate to MASK to support MASK Prize on: www.mobileartschoolinkenya.org
