Inspire opens on Tuesday 10 December 2019 to Sunday 22 March 2020
In the Octagon Gallery – Gallery 10, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge
Inspire is an exhibition of art made by primary school children and celebrates the creativity of our local schools. It champions the on-going importance of cultural learning and the visual arts for children and young people.
Based on the National Gallery’s Take one Picture, The Fitzwilliam Museum and AccessArt teamed together to offer free CPD (Continued Professional Development Sessions) for Teachers to local primary schools and resources, over the course of a year-long project Inspire 2020, focusing on one painting, Cupid and Psyche by Jacopo del Sellaio, as a source for ideas and inspiration.
Del Sellaio’s Cupid and Psyche will be on display next to the children’s work in the Octagon Gallery.
With very special thanks to Kate Noble, Miranda Stearn, Sarah Villis and Holly Morrison for making this project happen and Alison Ayres.
