Students in discussion with an artist-educator in the King's Library.
"The connections made with the artefacts and contemporary art practice were really useful and helped the students access the work seen in a meaningful way. The students really valued being told of the background to the object and they appreciated how they might use it as a starting point for ideas for their projects. It was engaging and allowed for different experiences and learning styles.”
