artist and educator from the school of applied arts in
Vienna in the early 1900s, Franz Cizek encouraged children
to present their personal reactions to happenings in their
lives in visual form. He didn't aim to develop artists,
but to develop the creative power he found in all children.
Cizek fought against criticism and ridicule until the
true value of this teaching became fully appreciated by
educationists around the world. An exhibition at the Lawrence
Batley Centre gallery at Bretton Hall shows the work of
his pupils from the National Arts Education Archive, originally
a touring exhibition from 1921.

and is open Mon-Thurs 9am-5pm, Fri 9am- 4.30pm; by appointment
only outside termtime. Tel: 01924 832020 email@example.com
