Drawing to learn or learning to draw? Why do we ask students to draw in the gallery and what learning opportunities can be unlocked through the practice of drawing?
These questions are central to Drawing on Art History, a research and development day hosted by The Courtauld Gallery on the occasion of the exhibition The Young Durer: Drawing the Figure and the Big Draw Festival. Through talks, workshops and seminars this intensive day looks to unravel the various modes and functions of drawing in the gallery.
Work alongside teaching colleagues and staff from The Courtauld—curators, gallery educators and practicing artist and educator Matthew Krishanu to revisit and explore drawing as a tool for learning in art galleries. Using The Courtauld Gallery collection and our current exhibitions as a stimulus, we hope to provide the space for reflection on teaching practice and the opportunity to develop practical and creative approaches to engaging with art and a gallery.
