Comment:   RE: SHK 20.0098 Shakespeare and Art - Brush with Science

Hello everyone,

I picked up on the Shakespeare and Art as every March I teach sessions 
called exactly that. Students visit the historic house, Blakesley Hall 
in Yardley, Birmingham, England, and take part in sessions studying how 
artists have represented the plays since the 1700s. They then work in 
groups with a piece of text to create their own 'Shakespeare picture' 
that they realize using costume props and coloured drapes etc on a 'set' 
in the historic house attics! It is huge fun and many students have been 
reported as talking about it for weeks afterwards. I would add that I 
work with the low academic ability pupils as well as the more able and 
that the sessions and visit are free.

Best
Jan Pick
