David Hockney: Learning Resources

These are written for school groups visiting the exhibition and include practical drawing tasks and discussions points to explore and have fun with!⁠

David Hockney Portraits: Life Love Art

Teachers’ Notes: Information and Activities for Secondary Art Teachers
These notes focus on particular aspects of Hockney’s portraiture and on a small number of interconnecting themes developed over Hockney’s career. They are intended to help students look at Hockney’s work and enable group discussion. They can be used to assist teaching in the gallery as well as in the artroom. Each image has questions and talking points that can be adapted to meet students’ needs. The suggestions for activities are designed to lead on to further areas of research into portraiture.

The National Portrait Gallery's teachers’ resource for David Hockney: Drawing from Life helps students look critically at Hockney’s work. The questions, discussion points and activities are aimed at Key Stage 3-5 Secondary Art, but can be adapted for younger age groups.
