AHiS with Leighton House Museum, London: Islamic Art Study Day

We are delighted to be returning to Leighton House to run our second study day to welcome 50 sixth form students of Art & Design and Art History to a programme of talks and workshops.  As well as answering the core question ‘What is Islamic Art?’, the key concept of Orientalism will be explored in relation to Lord Leighton, his collection and his house. Students will also learn about significant works some linked to the A level syllabus, see:  www.arthistoryinschools.org.uk/alevelresources, and have a chance to practise some calligraphy.  We hope more local schools in the borough will be able to attend this year.
