The Newham Art Teachers Network, meet once a term, in one of our local secondary schools. The network is made up of mainly Newham Secondary Art teachers; however we are keen to open up the meeting to others, in particular to East London secondary schools.
The meetings are an opportunity to share good practice, discuss joint and local initiatives and update on issues affecting art and art education. Visiting speakers from art institutions and establishments are key to developing external links and partnerships.
