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 email@example.com 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.

The Mask Prize is on display in the Education Gallery on Floor 2 and will move to the Education Room on LG from Dec 1st â€“ Jan 5th 2018. The prize is an annual competition with prizes for schools and young people under the age of 25 living in Africa and people of African origin living outside the continent. The competition ignites and celebrates their creativity - inventiveness, ingenuity, innovation, resourcefulness and outside-box thinking. The prize was created by Alla Tkachuk in 2012 with the aim of promoting and encouraging creativity amongst young people and schools in Africa.
This year the MASK Prize celebrates its 5th year! In 2017 it received more than 2000 works from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and South Africa. Since 2013, the competition has attracted more than 6,500 participants. Its exhibitions have been seen by 450,000 people in Kenya and beyond.
Participants enter works online into the following categories:
Visual Art under 13 y/o

"The MASK Prize is a unique pan-African competition, which encourages and celebrates the creativity of young Africans. Marking the MASK Prize's 5th year and the Portfolio's 10th year, and sharing a common theme, 'Making a Change', this is a great opportunity for young people across the two continents to come together and express their ideas and thoughts on the changes they would like to see in the world to better their lives. In a time of rapid global change, our survival will depend on new generations being empowered to generate new solutions for a more peaceful, prosperous and fulfilled life." Alla Tkachuk, the Founder of the MASK Prize
"The MASK Prize motivates us to be more creative and makes us better for it," say participants.
