The Art Gym is a space at the Tate Liverpool dedicated to helping youth find and explore their artistic talents and capabilities. The space is designed to have the aesthetic of an exercise room with encouraging and motivational decor with the focus geared towards art and self-expression instead of athleticism. The Art Gym acts as a meeting space for weekly programming, events and a workspace for visitors to use.

Unlike a traditional gym, the Art Gym replaces workout equipment with tables, art supplies and photography as well as life-drawing seminars. The space has the aesthetic of a gym to give the room a motivational quality with a boxing ring outlining the walls, punching bags and even hoodies that read 'Art Gym Instructor.'
