Learning through Paintings
There will be ten 2.5 hour sessions taught over the space of a week. Sessions will take the form of presentations, discussion, collaborative tasks and practical workshops.
Each day will take a different focus:
- Fostering engagement: developing a practical pedagogy
- The Gallery experience and the impact of curatorial and interpretation decisions
- The National Gallery collection as inspiration for contemporary artists
- National Gallery paintings as catalysts for cross-curricular enquiry
At the end of the week participants will be asked to give a ten-minute presentation to a small peer group. The process will enable them to apply their learning from the week. The task will be explained and supported during the week, as well as time given for preparation.
