George Shaw workshops for GCSE &
A Level students
To accompany the exhibition George Shaw: A Corner of a Foreign Field
8 February – 6 May 2019
Taking inspiration from our ground-breaking exhibition by contemporary painter, George Shaw, this workshop will encourage students to challenge conventional ideas of beauty in art. Shaw’s paintings of realist landscapes and the Midlands housing estate where he grew up, suggest alternative approaches – seeing beauty in the everyday and what surrounds us.
During a fully tutored workshop students will create small-scale paintings on metal, based on images from their own localities. This workshop can be adapted to suit different year groups (including A level).
