The Line has developed a series of Learning Resources to accompany its programme. These resources have been produced with artists and education consultants and are inspired by artworks on The Line. The Learning Resources are designed to enhance the curriculum and to encourage debate and discussion about the meaning of art in public space. They can be used in conjunction with a visit to The Line or via the website.

Our first sets of resources are inspired by the work of Thomas J Price and Larry Achiampong. Each pack includes Teaching Notes and a presentation to be used in class.

The school trip resource has been tailored to the KS2 curriculum and aims to provide lesson starting points that you can deliver to your students, inspired by art and heritage points along the route of The Line. The focus of this particular resource is on the history of the textiles trade around the areas of Stratford and Bow as well as artworks by late artist Madge Gill whose work is exhibited on The Line.

The classroom resource includes two one-hour activities to use in conjunction with the Nature in Mind school trip resource. They have been inspired by Robert Jones’ etching and Madge Gill’s work.

Three lessons for Years 5-9.

Flags explores why flags are important and what they symbolise. Students create a flag to represent their identity. The themes of the lesson are oppression, racism and equality.

Relic Travellers I draws on Achiampong’s work to pose the question ‘if a time traveller observed our society, what would they learn’? Students consider how our society is structured and whether it is fair.

Relic Travellers II inspires students to imagine themselves as travellers seeking out vocal testimonies of people from the African diaspora. Students consider what we can learn from the past to prepare for the future. The themes of the lesson are prejudice and discrimination.
