‘Deepening the game’ is a downloadable learning resource. Whilst designed with focus upon Key stage 3/4 and Secondary School levels, it is also suitable for adults. For more information or to download the resource, see : Estate of Francis Bacon

Further to this, an experimental Painting workshop for adults, inspired by Bacon’s studio, and cultivation of accident, offered a unique opportunity to experience Bacon’s painting methods – see photo’s beneath.

Working on rough, unprimed canvas, participants used old jumpers, stencils, sand and grit to vary mark making, and were encouraged to forage amongst the maelstrom of imagery on the floor to find subject matter. See Experimental painting workshop at the Francis Bacon website or use the contact form for further details.
