Schools & Colleges

Oriel Myrddin Gallery offers exciting school and college visits and outreach activities in relation to our exhibitions programme which compliment the curriculum.

A visit to the gallery is an ideal springboard for a new scheme of work. Our guided visits support creative learning, literacy and oracy, visual literacy and other transferable skills. Our ambitious, changing programme of exhibitions cover a range of cross-curricular subjects and are often applicable to cwricwlwm Cymreig.

Teachers’ Private Views: For each exhibition we host a Teachers’ Private View. These free twilight sessions offer teachers an exclusive opportunity to view our forthcoming exhibitions, pick up ideas and skills and participate in an informal discussion within a professional learning community.
