Tuke School is a school for young people aged 11 – 19yrs with severe, profound and complex learning disabilities based in Peckham, South London. This group exhibition brings together new artwork by the young people shown in the context of work by their artist mentor from Intoart’s Live Archive. Artists with learning disabilities from Intoart have undertaken a mentoring role, working alongside young people aged 17-19yrs in transition to leaving school. Over a period of six months, the mentors and mentees have developed a diverse range of visual artwork. Artwork and research material from Intoart’s Live Archive acted as a departure point for conversations and ideas.

Practice Makes is part of Intoart’s Live Archive programme. Intoart’s Live Archive is a growing resource facilitated by Intoart artists, as a public platform for critical dialogue, research, individual artistic progression and mentoring. Intoart artists are each developing an archive of their work, to include original artworks, reflective diaries, printed ephemera, photographic documentation and films. The archive includes over 1000 works to date and grows to include future works as they are made.

As part of the Practice Makes project, Intoart and Camberwell College of Art (Widening Participation) continue their ongoing relationship with Student Ambassadors and Intoart artists working together in the delivery of the project.
