Virtual Classroom: Impressionism

National Museums Liverpool’s brand new virtual classroom workshops are now available to book online!

Created for schools, the interactive curriculum-linked sessions – led by museum experts – will bring learning to life and inspire the imaginations of pupils by engaging them in activities based on real artefacts. Each virtual classroom is supported by resources and activities that teachers can use before and after their live workshop.

‘Impressionism – what’s that?’

This virtual classroom workshop is an interactive introduction to Impressionism. Using artworks from the Walker Art Gallery’s collection, workshop facilitators will use drawing challenges and visual thinking strategies to allow pupils to respond at a personal and creative level to two Impressionist masterpieces. Pupils will compare and contrast a traditional art style to the Impressionist modern movement, challenging the notion of what ‘good art’ looks like.
