Mackintosh and his extraordinary influence is a valuable resource for formal and informal learning. His work can inspire new ways of working in art, design, architecture and craft for all ages and abilities.

Useful Resources

Using Mackintosh in Learning

Museums, galleries and heritage venues offer innovative, dynamic and effective learning experiences supported by unique resources. They bring learners into direct contact with real Mackintosh objects, paintings, furniture, drawings, plans and buildings. These organisations are uniquely placed to link with key aspects of the curriculum; through a multi-disciplinary approach and direct engagement with original source material.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh is one of the most important designers of the 20th Century, and his individual style has become one of the most recognised of his generation. He was the fourth of eleven children born into a working class family that lived in the Townhead area in the east end of Glasgow, close to Glasgow Cathedral.

(1868 – 1928)
