set up various tableaux as part of a 'Culture' project
for our AS Level students. The objects and artefacts
provided by Starbeck are crucial for pupil appreciation
of a wide range of art and crafts from different continents
around the world. The Introduction of the International
Baccalaureate for pupils post 16 in 2008 means that
Starbeck, with it's emphasis on celebrating internationalism
and fair trade, is an absolute asset for Art departments."

super resource. We used these in an Art lesson when
sketching sea creatures and shells for our bucket &
spades topic. We also used this in an RE lesson when
talking about the natural world & creation (the
uniqueness of creation). Examples of how other teachers
have used the resources would be great, even activity
sheets to use alongside would be great."
