The “Let’s talk about art” education pack is part of the British Council’s Schools Online Education Programme. The pack is aimed at Key Stage 2 ( 7 – 11 years) and Key Stage 3 ( 11 – 14 years) and aims to encourage students to explore selected artworks in the British Council Collection. The practical activities are designed to develop communication, critical and analytical skills.
The activities, supported by notes for teachers, are shaped around each artwork and aimed to help students develop their knowledge of English, respond creatively to issues about themselves and society, and consider local and global changes.
The pack includes paintings by Laurence Stephen Lowry, David Hepher and Morag Keil as well as sculptures by Barbara Hepworth and Mark Wallinger.
