The first of the four main chapters consists of an overview of the theoretical background to art education, which serves as a basis for the planning of the more practical part of the project. The second chapter examines how art can be made use of in the English classroom, especially in view of creating new learning opportunities. Chapter three is a detailed description and analysis the of the art
exhibition project itself, which is essentially student-centred, with learner autonomy and peer-teaching as important foci. The last chapter explores ways in which this project could be recreated in other contexts.
