Insights into art history half term workshops!

In October half term we were very happy to welcome young people on two one-day workshops at The Courtauld Gallery. A mixture of returning faces from projects, such as Animating Art History and  Art History in the Classroom, and new faces from schools and colleges across London.

Day one focused on Prints and Drawings with printmaker and print historian Helen Higgins (@helenhigginsart) leading the day. We visited both the gallery and had an exclusive look at the Prints and Drawings room with Assistant Curator of Works on Paper Dr Rachel Sloan. See below for pictures from the day!

Day two continued the theme of prints and drawings, but this time focusing on Jasper Johns: Regrets at The Courtauld. Working with artist Nadine Mahoney and Dr Katie Faulker, we were lucky enough to have a curator’s tour by Dr Barnaby Wright followed by creating lots of experimental drawings.
