Maximum 25 students. For whole class groups or mixed year groups of gifted and talented students. Your students will work with a children’s author to explore the collection as a basis for creative writing. Using paintings and rare and precious objects as a stimulus for the imagination, the students will leave with material for the writing of description, dialogue, poetry, reportage or a short story to be completed back at school. The following themes are available:
- Myths and Legends
- Dramatic Monologues
- The Grand Tour: Travel Writing
For A-Level English Language or English Literature/Language students, this would be an ideal opportunity to fulfill syllabus requirements for creative writing. Web resources are available.
