Animating Art History Courtauld Institute of Art

Animating Art History is an on-going widening participation partnership between The Courtauld Institute of Art and University of the Arts London. Each year, twenty six young people aged 16-19, from families with no prior engagement in higher education, take part in the innovative course which combines art history, photography and animation. Following research and experimentation led by academics from both institutions, students produce final works of art inspired by The Courtauld Gallery collection, both in animation and photographic format accompanied by short texts outlining their research.
