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.

Reaching Out considers Price’s artwork ‘Reaching Out’, currently on The Line, exploring how the sculpture was created and why it is important. The lesson opens up discussions about representation, power and diversity in our society.

Statues asks students to consider who statues should represent, and to make the case for commemorating an individual who has contributed to UK society. The lesson raises questions about representation, stereotyping, diversity and inclusion.

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.
