Culture Street working with NCA students

Culture Street is a free cross art-form site that introduces young people to contemporary artists, writers, filmmakers and performers and their amazing work. Our passion is highlighting creative role models and encouraging creativity in the classroom and beyond, and where a child lives shouldn’t be a barrier to the arts. Culture Street is brought to you by the award winning team that produced ArtisanCam, Film Street and ArtisanCam Performance.

We sent a group of Yr9’s to The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to find out what they could about a sculpture by famous Impressionist painter Edgar Degas. How was it made and how realistic is the sculpture? Why did Degas not exhibit any of these sculptures during his lifetime?
There is a lesson plan to accompany this film which shows how the work was made.

We sent a group of Yr9’s to The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to find out what they could about a large wooden sculpture of a horse by Tesa Pullan called Dobbin. Why and how was it made and where to the museum keep such a large work? You can use this film to start a debate in your classroom about sculpture and why museum collect objects.
