LECTURING & TEACHING
Sarah Cove ACR is an experienced lecturer, presenter and teacher. From academic papers at international conferences to a talk for primary school children, her lectures have encompassed every type of audience, venue and age range. She has given public lectures at most of the major UK galleries, the National Galleries of Scotland, Wales and Ireland, in Copenhagen, Lisbon and at venues across the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Sarah has been an Accredited Lecturer for The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS) since 2003. She also lectures to charitable organisations, art societies and special interest groups. In addition to lecturing, Sarah has given Gallery Talks in front of the paintings at Tate, the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery, London, the V&A and the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (here, 2016).
Sarah's presentation is lively and enthusiastic as she speaks without notes with an inimitable passion that comes from presenting her own work with wonderful images. She offers a 'behind the scenes at the museum' peek into a world of transformative studio treatments and fascinating technical research. She is now offering online lectures using Zoom and other platforms.
Sarah has taught courses on Constable and Turner's painting methods and materials in London Primary schools and to art students and keen amateurs at Tate Britain. She has delivered Collections Care training for conservators, students, curators and heritage volunteers in the UK and Australia.
