Art History in The Classroom
- Key Stage 5
- Delivered directly in your school or college
- Maximum 25 students per session
A series of visiting seminar-lectures delivered by a postgraduate research student or Alumni of The Courtauld Institute of Art in your school or college. Art History in the Classroom introduces students to the subject of Art History in addition to developing visual literacy, research and presentation skills. Sessions extend and enrich Art and Design and humanities curricula and are particularly beneficial in developing skills, knowledge and confidence for the critical and contextual component of the Art and Design A-level, BTEC and for the EPQ.
The project structure is flexible to meet the needs and constraints of schools and colleges but usually consists of three to four sessions; an introductory visit to The Courtauld Gallery followed by seminars in school/college. Each session focuses on a different theme drawn from The Courtauld Gallery’s remarkable collection. Examples of themes include but are not limited to: The Body in Art, The Science of Seeing and The Lie of the Landscape.
