Art Discovery Boxes

Art Discovery Boxes are resource loan boxes for schools. They use modern art to bring learning to life! Each box provides a range of teaching ideas and resources and supports exploration of a particular theme (see below). Boxes can be used across the key stages.

Each box contains: an easel, an A2 artwork for display, printed teaching and learning resources, handling objects, a selection of artworks, and two linked fiction books. There is a lesson plan in each box to facilitate use, as well as a range of activity suggestions to dip in and out of. Electronic copies of resources, including supporting Powerpoints, are emailed to schools in advance (see below for links). Boxes are delivered and collected. Loans are for a two week period and absolutely free to Swindon schools.

For more information, or to book a box, email Learning Officer Mags Parker – maparker@swindon.gov.uk
