School programs

Education through art

Take part in GMB's learning programmes where students broaden their horizons through experimenting with art materials. The programs support visual literacy development and help students formulate motor and vocabulary skills. They unlock creativity and stimulate young people to discover their innovative potential. Creating art may inspire them to pursue a career in the creative industry. A visit to the GMB Atelier fosters children's and youth's trust, relationship and understanding of artists, galleries, cultural centres and museums. Bring them in to experience art and to be inspired by it.
