ARTiculation Discovery Days

ARTiculation Discovery Days have been designed to develop and support students’ understanding and engagement with art, the development of research and communication skills. 

These workshops are open to state-maintained schools, and are free of charge to attend but booking is required. See dates for this autumn term below.

Open to KS4 and KS5 students in England and students in Scotland studying for Highers and Advanced Highers. Discovery Days can support curriculum delivery in multiple subjects including Art, History, English, PSHE and Citizenship and have been shown to support the development of higher cognitive skills such as evaluative thinking and creativity. You can see a sample Discovery Day schedule here

Throughout the course of one day, students explore art works through:

  • personal observation
  • discussion
  • interviews with curators and directors
  • independent and group research 
  • public speaking exercises 

Participants are introduced to tips on how to conquer nerves, physically prepare, and successfully deliver a presentation to large audiences.

At the end of the Discovery Days, every student demonstrates their research and personal responses in short group presentations.  

As part of our programme of outreach, ARTiculation Discovery Days are fully funded by our sponsors and are open to state sector schools only.
