Art Workshop devised by Nadege Meriau in response to Henry Wessel Collection, Tate Modern, 2015
My presentation reflected on my time as an artist in residence on the 2014/2015 Tate school workshop programme. I talked about my experience as an artist devising and leading workshops rooted in my practice and in response to the Tate collection for mainstream and SEN school children. The presentation focused on how I gained a deeper and wider understanding of my role as an artist and my practice through engaging children with the arts and the gallery environment. It started a discussion about the specific value of the artist –as opposed to the teacher or art therapist - in gallery settings and outreach projects.
