The Artist Rooms

https://www.tate.org.uk/artist-rooms has a Learning resource section with information on a number of artists. Some of the info includes video which are quite interesting and also suggestions of things to do. It is generally free of artspeak and, in some cases, discusses the artist’s mental health.
