UCL Art Museum learning resources

Class in UCL Art Museum

We welcome both new and existing audiences with flexible Learning and Teaching provisions for adults and school groups. For the curious visitor we offer gallery talks, tours and performances; for A-Level, EPQ and Foundation students we run workshops and in-depth sessions using different aspects of the collection. We also work extensively with different departments across UCL through classes, seminars and practical sessions tailored around specific themes.

Our learning programmes range from lunch-hour pop-up displays to evening book launches and weekend classes. All learning events are devised and led in collaboration with UCL lecturers, researchers and graduate students. The starting point of most of these public events is the inspiration derived from various aspects of art practice, critical and historical perspectives raised by the collection. 

Schools workshops are adapted to the demands of the English, History, Art and Design and History of Art A-Level curricula, using specific parts of the collection. Workshops in the past have utilised our excellent collections of life drawings by Slade students, French Revolution propaganda prints, political printed satires and 16th-century drawings. 

The collection is also a valuable teaching and research resource for staff and students at UCL. We regularly support the development of teaching with the collection and invite UCL lecturers to make use of the collection and the space in order to enhance their teaching.

Teaching drop-in sessions, May 2015

Re-Launch exhibition private view 2

UCL Art Museum welcomes academic staff to a series of drop-in sessions to experience the benefits of teaching and learning in our newly refurbished space. The old charm of the traditional print room remains but the space has been modernised and enhanced to provide better access to the over 8,000 prints, drawings, sculpture and archives stored close at hand.  Please come to see some of our collection highlights, get some ideas and speak to regular users about the benefits of collections-based teaching. Staff will be at hand to talk about how to develop a bespoke session that suits your curriculum needs. We could already book the space/ time to reserve your session in 2015/16.

The next drop in sessions are scheduled for:

  • Wednesday 20 May 11.30am-1pm
  • Thursday 21 May 11.30am-1pm

Please RSVP to college.art@ucl.ac.uk if you'd like to attend.
