Welling School & The Courtauld: Hidden From History?


On Thursday we had the first session generating content for our exciting  Zine project with The Courtauld Gallery after school.

 Students from Year 7 have been set the creative brief to  make a Zine which will be distributed in the AE newspaper and displayed on The Courtauld’s website and blog. This will be on the theme
 of gender and explore the research question:Hidden from History? Discuss women’s role in The Courtauld Gallery and beyond. We hosted Dr Katie Faulkner a visiting lecturer from the Courtauld Institute who guided us through our initial questions and we  planned lots of  practical workshops to  visually explore the complex ideas relating gender to objectification and institutions.
Through this project the students will expand their knowledge of art history and The Courtauld collection.
