The Fitzwilliam Collection

Since 2016, AccessArt has teamed up with Kate Noble, education officer at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, and the education team, to deliver CPD (continued professional development) for primary school teachers in Cambridgeshire.

The aim of the sessions is to empower teachers to use the museum’s collection and experience hands-on making to inspire creativity in the classroom as well as develop a creative community of artists, educators, and teachers locally.

Beyond that, we hope that these resources, enriched with images of objects and paintings from the museum’s collection, and packed with creative ideas, will inspire you from wherever you are.

With many thanks to the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, and Kate Noble for this ongoing collaboration.

Inspire: A Celebration of Children’s Art in Response to Jacopo del Sellaio’s Cupid and Psyche

The Fitzwilliam Museum and AccessArt teamed together to offer free CPD (Continued Professional Development for Teachers), focusing on one painting, Cupid and Psyche by Jacopo del Sellaio, resulting in Inspire, an exhibition of art made by primary school children. Inspire celebrated creativity in Cambridgeshire schools and championed the on-going importance of cultural learning and the visual arts for all children and young people.
