Articulation Programme – Eyes on the Prize

Following on from the Articulation Discovery Day at the beginning of the month, we have four students who are now entering the Articulation Programme. The programme consists of an online mentoring session to support those students who are participating in, or thinking of participating in, the Articulation Prize. The Prize itself follows on from the skills developed during the Discovery Day and gives students the opportunity to “deliver a 10-minute presentation to an audience about a work of art, architecture or an artefact in a museum or gallery setting. … Adjudicators then asses each presentation as a whole, looking at content, structure, delivery and the speaker’s original approach and unique potential.” (National Gallery, 2022)

The online mentoring takes place on Monday 21st November, during which time our students will be invited to discuss their presentation with members of the Articulation team and learn about the Prize. The mentoring also has the following objectives:

  • “engage in talking about thoughts, opinions and observations in art
  • understanding what makes a good presentation
  • conducting visual analysis and critically thinking about art.” (National Gallery 2022)

We will keep you updated as to our students’ progress with the Prize.
