Arts & Culture for all
Why are we so passionate?
Meet anyone on the team and we'll be able to tell you what drives us on our mission to bring art history to all. Here are our top 3 reasons:
A Full Curriculum
We believe an arts education is a fundamental aspect of a full curriculum. Art history is subject that covers literature, philosophy, politics, music, social advancement, war & conflict, sociology, scientific development, architecture, design, geography and so on.
Its interdisciplinary nature enables student to engage with different topics whilst providing the focus of studying certain artworks. This gives students to a truly broad education that promotes forming opinions based on a variety of information.
The breath of art history promotes intellectual curiosity. It's a chance to build comprehension skills across subjects and that is an important part of our students education.
Our workshops are designed to engage students and encourage them to form opinions based on varying contexts. By discussing their opinions and allowing them to explain how they feel certain factors affect the artworks in question, we are building up their ability to develop and present their opinions; by encouraging them we are giving them confidence to continue to do so on a wider context.
As well as building up confidence and communication skills through our workshops, we also believe that building artistic sensibility is fundamental in a young person's development. Exercising their artistic eye allows them to fully appreciate the world around and help them interact with environments and situations.
Open up opportunities in the arts
We believe in Arts for All. However, without access to art history studies students will lack confidence in viewing and understanding artworks. As a result many students from an array of backgrounds may not consider further studies or a career in art thus limiting their aspirations.
We want to change this.
By encouraging discussion and artistic curiosity in our workshops, we hope to nurture a new generation of artists, poets, curators, musicians, writers, designers, academics, journalists, illustrators; but also creative scientists, programmers, policy makers, entrepreneurs and so on. Our art history workshops opens up their worldview and gives them a creative edge.
Our main aim is to aid the development of valuable skills that will help students throughout their educational and professional careers. We believe our students equipped with comprehension & communication skills, an artistic eye and confidence will be an unstoppable force in whatever field they choose to pursue. Once they are aware of the vast array of possibilities available to them, they can go on to shape the world around them.
