Offered in the context of a programme of international contemporary art, CAST’s learning activities range from opportunities for young people to engage directly with artists through talks, screenings, workshops and studio visits, to ‘Art Lab’ sessions for primary schools, free holiday workshops, and a regular Saturday club for young people aged twelve to sixteen. We also offer online learning resources for children and families, which can be accessed here.

If you are a school or educational provider and would like to find out more about CAST’s learning programme please get in touch.

An archive of CAST’s public programme of talks, screenings and workshops, including Lucy Grant’s popular ‘Think and Make’ sessions for children and families, can be found under Events.

CAST’s learning programme is supported by the Garcia Family Foundation.
