As a freelance artist educator for The National Gallery, I plan and deliver workshops for young people in response to current exhibitions.
From September - November 2018, I worked with the Young Producers to produce an original podcast relating to the 'Mantegna and Bellini' exhibition at The National Gallery. Young people chose to relate the exhibition to representation of women in Renaissance art, and investigate how this manifests today. Participants learned storytelling techniques, how to conduct interviews and edit audio on Logic X software, and made a high quality audio work in ten sessions.
The podcast, published on The National Gallery's YouTube channel, has had over 3,000 listens so far!
Is Renaissance art still relevant today? Why are there so many untold stories about women in art from that time?
