Learning at Charleston

Learning at Charleston is inspired by our unique artist’s home, our permanent collections and a new programme of changing gallery exhibitions.

Our vision is for Charleston to be a place where everyone is welcome. Where, in the tradition of the artists who lived and worked here, people can come to be inspired, explore new ideas, debate, create and experiment.

Our experienced Learning team staff, artist educators and creative specialists offer a programme of workshops, activities and events for community groups, families and young people, schools, colleges and universities. Please click on the images below to find out more.

A group of 13 local LGBTQ+ people worked together at Charleston to explore the House, Garden, and surrounding South Downs landscape with photography and words. They created the beautifully imagined Zine which is shown in this image.
