“I enjoy coming to this event because the help and the resources of the museum are endless! The paintings help develop your art and enable you to think further, plus it is really peaceful so you can concentrate.”
GCSE student who attended SOURCE 2014
For the last eight years The Fitzwilliam Museum has offered SOURCE over and beyond the Spring half-term, supporting GCSE, AS/A Level and BTEC Art and Design students as they prepare for their exams.
Based in the informal atmosphere of the Fitzwilliam studio, the Museum Education team and freelance artists offer one-to-one advice to students. We can help students to research their exam theme by giving access to the wealth of ideas and inspiration in the work of other artists. To do this we offer starting points, gallery tours and advice on how to make the most of our on-line resources.
In addition, the artists and art materials in the studio are available, and not least the space - both mental and physical - to work which is not always so easy to find at home. Artistic support is available in the media of drawing, painting and printmaking each day, and also encouragement to draw from observation in the galleries.
SOURCE has been shown to help students meet the Assessment Objectives set out in each exam paper, and to improve their grade. Why not try it?
