Teacher CPD: Art Teachers’ Masterclass

Norwich Castle, Saturday 15 June 2024, 10.15am until 4.15pm, free, max 12 participants

Recharge your artistic batteries after a long, hard year! Whatever your level, enjoy a day with a professional artist to develop your own creative practice as well as inspiring you for the classroom. Led by artist Caroline Chouler-Tissier, this year’s class will be experimental and sociable! Caroline works primarily in clay, but develops her ideas using mixed media, film and story. Her starting point will be Holding Space, the Castle’s current exhibition of contemporary and modern art.

Booking deadline 7 June 2024. Please note that this event is open to art teachers only. More information about the Art Teachers’ Masterclass.

Take One Picture Continuing Professional Development session

Norwich Castle, dates by request, free

Take One Picture is an approach for primary schools developed by the National Gallery, and Norwich Castle is delighted to be its regional partner. One painting is used as inspiration for meaningful and creative cross-curricular work. We offer an introductory CPD session to explain the approach and give some practical examples to use in the classroom. It’s a fantastic opportunity for whole-school projects such as Arts Week as well as smaller-scale creative classroom work. The artworks currently available at the Castle are The Paston Treasure and John Crome’s Norwich River: Afternoon. View Take One Picture teachers’ packs.
