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:
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.
