SOURCE at The Fitzwilliam Museum

For the third year The Fitzwilliam Museum will be offering SOURCE over and beyond the Spring half term, supporting GCSE and AS/A Level Art and Design students as they prepare for their exams.

Based in the informal atmosphere of the Fitzwilliam’s studio, the Museum’s 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 will be available in the media of drawing, painting and printmaking each day, and also encouragement to draw from observation in the galleries.

In the last two years attending 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?

14, 17-21 and 28 February 2009 from 10.00 - 16.30

FREE. Drop-in: no booking required. Refreshments available.

Supported by the Eridge Trust
