We aim to help learners of all ages and experience gain further understanding of The Courtauld Gallery collections. 

Our Learning Resources archive focuses on the gallery’s exhibition programme, expanding on a key theme from an exhibition and exploring it in relation to the permanent collection.

Art and Maths in the Courtauld Collection

This learning resource reveals the fascinating connections between art and maths by exploring The Courtauld Gallery’s collections of Islamic metalwork and Italian Maiolica ceramics, and demonstrates how they can encourage your students to appreciate mathematics as an inter-connected discipline with a wide range of creative applications that can be used in school.

The accompanying lesson plan and student workbook relates to upper Key Stage 2 but can be adapted to suit other stages of learning.
