FREE ADMISSION

What do portraits tell us about people, who they are and what is their character? How do artists show differences between people and what they are feeling?

Format of the session

The museum led session is scheduled for 2 hours and is delivered in the first 60 minutes of your booked slot. We recommend that schools use their second hour for follow-up time from the taught session.

For a self-led (DIY) session (DIY resource) we recommend you spend up to one hour delivering your do-it-yourself session.

Contact us on 01223 332904 or email education@fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk to book, or to discuss your needs.

The pupils were able to think about art and images in different ways, and it was helpful in encouraging the pupils to think about what is in front of them more critically.
