Secondary and FE Outreach Workshops


September 2018 – July 2019

From Sunday 2 September 2018 The Courtauld Gallery will temporarily close for a major transformation project, Courtauld Connects, which will restore the historic building, improve access and create a dedicated learning centre for schools, families and community groups.

Whilst the renovation is taking place we will continue to work with learning groups through a lively outreach programme of free workshops, delivered directly in schools and colleges. These will explore a combination of art history and practical art-based approaches.

About our workshops

A specialist educator, postgraduate research student or alumni of The Courtauld Institute of Art will explore art history and art practice with your students, drawing on themes within our world-renowned collection.

Our workshops are: 

  • Suitable for Key Stages 3, 4, and 5
  • Delivered directly in your school or college
  • Free of charge for non-selective state schools or FE colleges*
  • Cross-curricular – open to students studying Art & Design, Classics, English Literature, History, Languages, Photography, and Politics
  • Minimum 10 students per session (we can accommodate multiple classes on the same day where possible)
  • Advance booking is essential (minimum notice 4-6 weeks)

EXPLORE ART HISTORY!  Critical contextual workshop

This interactive and exploratory workshop can be tailored to fit your students’ learning needs. Students will be introduced to key works from the Courtauld Gallery Collection and encouraged to take part in discussion and debate. Students will develop visual literacy, research, discussion and presentation skills through a range of engaging activities led by a specialist artist or art history educator.

Suitable for English, History, Photography, Textiles, Art & Design Curricula

DRAWING TOGETHER Practical art workshop

Led by an experienced artist-educator, students are introduced to a variety of drawing techniques to develop sketch book skills. Students will investigate different ways of looking, recording, questioning and responding to a chosen theme.

Suitable for Art & Design, Photography, and Textiles Curricula

We encourage students work in their own sketchbooks where possible.
