Booking essential
Suitable for KS4&5 teachers

Please join us for a free online Teachers’ CPD Event on the theme of Art and Identity.

Why is art history relevant today and how can images from the past help us understand the present? In a session with Professor Jo Applin and art historian Tilly Scantlebury, we will look closely at figurative and abstract paintings to uncover hidden histories of race, gender and power by artists such as Frank Bowling, Howardena Pindell and Barkley L. Hendricks.

This event will also provide teachers with an opportunity to find out more about our free week-long online Year 12 Art History Summer University course which takes place between Monday 4 to Friday 8 July 2022.
