This new learning programme runs alongside our new exhibition Modern Living opening 22 August.
Students will sketch their way through the exhibition with the longer programme containing more creative hands on and digital responses.
Prompts for educators
To get you and your class thinking about some of the ideas within Modern Living, have a look at the prompts below.
Try them out with your class and send us some, or all, of the resulting writing or drawing and we can display them in the exhibition and on here. On top of this, we will also give you a free Modern Living learning programme!
How can you design a home for happiness and wellbeing? Write about or draw the structure that you would like to live in.
Architects and designers of the 1950s used local materials as much as possible. Today, the need for local, sustainable materials is more urgent than ever. Describe or draw your ideal environmentally friendly house. What is it made of – straw, clay, seaweed, flax, recycled materials, wool?
