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