The Story of Cupid and Psyche Sellaio, Jacopo del; painter; Italian artist, 1441/2-1493
 
During these practical, hands-on CPD Sessions for Primary School Teachers, we will take a closer look at Del Sellaio’s Cupid and Psyche, and celebrate how this remarkable Rennaisance panel inspired the creation of artworks by primary school pupils in Cambridgeshire, on display in the INSPIRE Exhibition in the Octagon Gallery from 10th December 2019 until 22nd March 2020.
 
We would be delighted to welcome back primary school teachers, who participated in the INSPIRE 2020 Project, as well as those who were unable to come to the original sessions. These sessions will demonstrate how to look at and use objects in the Fitzwilliam Museum collection to support and deepen learning in the classroom, and further develop practical, fine art skills essential for the delivery of a balanced curriculum. 
 
The sessions will be facilitated by the Fitzwilliam Education Team and AccessArt and co-led by participating teachers from the INSPIRE Exhibition.
