The THG Youth Group Masterpieces usually meet every other Wednesday from 4.30pm – 6pm at the gallery. The group is made up of young people, 12 years old and upwards. They undertake art activities with the Gallery Curator or guest artists and when funding allows they travel to other galleries, most recently Tate St Ives where they met members of Young Tate.
Originally funded by engage the National Association for Gallery Education and partnered by the Ivy Project in Exeter, the group were formed to find out why young people weren’t coming to the gallery and to instigate ways of targeting a new young audience. Thanks to members of Masterpieces THG now has a thriving audience of young people and the youth group is fully subscribed. If you would like to be added to the Masterpieces waiting list please contact the gallery.
