Project Visible is an initiative from the Tate Schools Workshops programme. This year it took the form of a series of posters designed by the ten artists on the programme. The form of the project refers to previous Tate initiative School Prints which ran from 1946-7. This was an ambitious scheme launched at the close of the Second World War bu Brenda Rawnsley, a British arts campaigner and education activist. Aiming to find ‘a means of giving school children access to contemporary art’ she produced prints by artists including Picasso, Lowry and Matisse for the classroom wall.
Project Visible was launched at Tate Modern in October 2014 with an exhibition of the commissioned works. It is also available as a resource, and has been sent out to more than 6000 pupils so far.
