Secondary Art Connections

Session Description

Join us in the paintings galleries to explore paintings up close with our Musuem Teachers.

Explore how artists and artworks shape our world, express concepts, beliefs, and relationships. Find out about different art media and techniques and how artists employ line, shape, colour, texture, and composition to express ideas.

Format of the session

Through mindful visual examination, thoughtful conversation and shared discussion designed to foster your students playful and imaginative curiosity around art and artworks, we learn together to create Art Connections.

Choose from one of our themes:

  1. Portraits and Heads

  2. Landscapes, near and far

  3. How to read a painting

Your museum visit is scheduled for two hours. Half the group will be taught by one of our Museum teachers for one hour, while the other half of the group will explore the Museum with your school staff using the self-led Art Connection starting points that accompany your chosen themed session. The groups will then swap for the second hour.

Plans for Autumn 2022 are being finalised and once confirmed, dates will be available to book [here] ( There will be no September sessions available, dates for October onwards will be confirmed very soon.

‘Students are using their research to influence their own work. There were many positive responses.’ – KS4/5 Teacher
