Tours and workshops can be adapted to the age and needs of your students from KS3 to A2 Art and Design and History of Art. Exhibitions 2012- 2013 Art from the Ulster Museum Collection Currently the art galleries display some of the best of the Ulster Museum’s art collections, with old favourites and some new additions. Exhibitions include Irish art, works on paper, highlights of the fashion collections and international 20th century art. The displays may change with loans, rehangs and temporary exhibitions so please check in advance if you are visiting to look at specific work.

With such a variety of work on display there are many themes for visits, we suggest the following: Eye-opener (a wide-ranging tour looking at different styles, media and types of work, raising issues and testing analytical skills): Portraits and People (looking at how portraits are constructed with examples in different styles and media): Irish Art (a survey of key works by Irish artists in the collection).
