Learning through Paintings is a five-day summer school for teachers and art professionals keen to explore models of learning in museum and gallery education.

Working both in gallery and workshop spaces, participants will be led through a series of experiences that will enable them to plan, implement and evaluate new approaches to teaching and learning in art, craft and design. These experiences will offer opportunities for participants to work towards developing and improving their practice within the educational context in which they work.

Sessions will be led by members of National Gallery staff, invited artists and academics. The module is targeted at all primary, secondary and early years’ teachers and other professionals with an interest in art and design education and museum and gallery education.

Following the summer school, participants will have the option of writing a reflective assignment in order to claim 20 Masters’ level credits. These credits can lead towards a Masters’ level award in Education or Art, Craft and Design Education from the University of Roehampton, London.
