Lucy Wheeler, Assistant Education Officer

The Learning Team at Kettle’s Yard are delighted to share Light – a new Learning Resource for Kettle’s Yard. Light is the first of three learning resources that outline key themes of the Kettle’s Yard collection. We hope it will support teachers and educators to engage students with Kettle’s Yard and to plan sessions both on-site and in the classroom.

Light includes contextual information about the importance of light in regard to Jim Ede’s thinking for Kettle’s Yard, as well as highlighting individual artworks in the collection in which artists utilised and manipulated the fall of light and shadows to create their artworks. The resource also includes cross-curricular information on artworks, as well as contemporary responses to light.

All feedback is welcomed and completion of our online survey would be much appreciated as it will help us make the next two resources, Nature and Space, even better. Light was generously funded by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and we thank them for their continued support of our work. If you would like a hard copy of light, please email  education@kettlesyard.cam.ac.uk and we will send you a resource.

We are also holding a Teachers Private View of our next exhibition Art and Life: 1920-1931 on Tuesday 25th February. This will be the official launch of Light and will serve as an opportunity to learn more about our future resources, as well as enjoying a guided tour of the show. The evening is free of charge, but please book your place by contacting Lucy Wheeler on 01223 74810001223 748100 or emailing education@kettlesyard.cam.ac.uk
