This year at Kettle’s Yard, they are practising seeing things from another point of view and exploring EMPATHY. This activity will help you to use your imagination to think how the world might look and feel to a spider.
This resource has been designed to help students develop research skills by using a painting as a starting point.
By working through the project you will find out about a range of skills, strategies and methods which can then be applied to other museum and gallery objects. The resource has been written with reference to the A-Level Assessment Objectives to demonstrate how to plan and manage a research project and use a range of different resources.

Maybe you have heard of Emperor Hadrian - who built Hadrian's wall near the Scottish/English border. But have you heard of the man he loved, Antinous? Listen to this story about how much Hadrian cared for Antinous.
Our big range of Look, Think, Do activities encourage children and families to look deeply and thoughtfully at objects and to respond imaginatively through thinking, talking and making together -from Ancient Egyptian neckpieces to coins stamped by protesting Suffragettes.
You can use the shorter Look and Think activities for just a few minutes or spend a bit longer making something fantastic.

This resource is designed to help you Look, Think, and Do inspired by 'The Last of England by Ford Madox Brown. The travellers in this painting are some of the millions who left Great Britain in the middle of the 19th century in search of a better standard of living. The artist, Ford Madox Brown, considered moving to India towards the end of 1852. This painting was inspired by the departure of his friend, the sculptor Thomas Woolner, who headed to Australia in search of gold.
