Inspired by Edgar Degas: Printmaking, Drawing & Sculpture at the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge with AccessArt
In November 2017, a group of primary school teachers explored the exhibition Degas A Passion for Perfection, at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge with the museum’s education officer, Kate Noble, Paula Briggs and Sheila Ceccarelli from AccessArt.
The aim of Fitzwilliam Museum and AccessArt CPD sessions is to empower teachers to use museum collections and inspire creativity in the classroom. Teachers have first-hand experience of looking at great works, with the help of Kate, to inform how to approach looking and interpreting work, combined with a personal exploration and discovery of practical fine art processes with Paula and Sheila from AccessArt. Teachers are encouraged to make creative responses and learn new Art skills, transferable into the classroom setting.
For those who can not participate in Fitzwilliam Museum and AccessArt CPD in the museum, we hope that the resources below will have all that you need to inspire creativity in the classroom, from a distance, inspired by Edgar Degas.
The Fitzwilliam Museum has the most extensive and representative collections of works by Degas in the UK and generously shares images of works with schools to use freely in the classroom.
UK Charity AccessArt created this resource in collaboration with the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
AccessArt has over 850 resources to help develop and inspire your creative thinking, practice and teaching.
AccessArt welcomes artists, educators, teachers and parents both in the UK and overseas.
We believe everyone has the right to be creative and by working together and sharing ideas we can enable everyone to reach their creative potential.
