Art as a Window on the World

This pack is primarily aimed at teachers working with pupils at KS2, although it could easily be used with children of different ages. The pack uses the idea of objects as a window on the world to suggest new strategies for learning and developing new ideas through object based work. Although objects from the Sainsbury Centre’s permanent collection are used here, the suggested framework can be used with any object you wish to work with, in or out of the classroom.
