“The person that you think you are and the person you are received as are two completely, oftentimes, different people” Kehinde Wiley

After the recent acquisition of St Adelaide by queer, black artist Kehinde Wiley which is a contemporary stained glass portrait of a young black man depicted as a saint, we wanted to create a session where students can look at various different portraits in our collection and use the visit to increase their knowledge in order to compare and contrast against differing portraiture styles some of which challenge the conventions of Western Art.

A lot of the portraits we have in our collection are people of great significance e.g. Queen Victoria, George III, The Duke of Clarence – what was it that made these people powerful? Do you need to be a royal to be majestic or heroic?
The session will also include the opportunity for students to create their own self-portrait reflecting on what makes them feel powerful, proud, and noble.

Using the gallery for artistic sources of inspiration


The museum gallery is a fantastic place for GCSE, A-Level and equivalent college-level Art and Design students to access examples of historic, modern and contemporary art. We have portable lightweight chairs in the gallery which can be used for sketching. The variety of stained glass on display provides examples of traditional and modern crafts, innovative approaches to design, as well as glass colouring, cutting, painting and firing techniques.
