University of the West of ScotlandArtist–Teacher​ Programme

GoMA is a partner of the UWS ArtistTeacher Programme and offers support by hosting seminars and lectures through our Learning and Access department. As a partner and a supporter of  the continual development of creative thinking through education, GoMA is delighted to host UWS’s yearly Artist–Teacher Exhibition.

Being a part of the Artist–Teacher Exhibition marks a significant moment in the professional development of new graduates of the UWS Master of Education ArtistTeacher Programme. It is also significant in terms of UWS’s partnership with Glasgow Museums and the National Society for Education in Art and Design who together, since it’s inception in 2010, have helped the ArtistTeacher Programme in Scotland to grow nationally and internationally. 

With Glasgow Museums as a partner, the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) has become the programme's natural home, sharing a mutual concern for the place of contemporary art and thereby contemporary issues in education - key drivers of the ArtistTeacher Programme.​  For more information please contact UWS here
