Seeing Art, Doing Art: using visual arts in teaching

Author: Katherine Wimpenny   15th December 2015

s200_wendy.couchmanOn 9th December, Professor Wendy Couchman, from London Southbank University, facilitated a two-hour workshop entitled ‘Seeing Art, Doing Art: using visual arts in teaching’, in which 18 teaching and research staff from across campus, visited the Herbert Art Gallery and show on ‘War Games’ to stimulate discussion about how the use of visual arts can be used in teaching with examples from practice and the literature:

Workshop participants commented on how: 

“Going to the gallery exhibition and workshop was inspiring and challenging. We need more space and time to fully explore creative opportunities for the classroom”

“It was great to get academic staff in the gallery; an unusual yet playful space for learning”

“It was good to work with different disciplines to develop our art piece and we had interesting discussions to inform our curriculum…. we need to pilot what we have learnt”

Please contact Katherine Wimpenny and join our community of students and staff to progress our ideas and practices for creativity in the classroom drawing on arts related research and pedagogy.
