WORK WITH ME: Individuals

You can work with me in a number of different ways, from one-to-one focused sessions, to my live and self-paced online courses. 


Claire Bown of Thinking Museum

I offer a limited number of coaching opportunities for museum and heritage educators looking to set personal and professional goals and to develop and grow in their practice. I am an ILM Certified Coach. 

Choose from:

  • A one-off session of 2 hours (online or in-person)

A focused and immersive coaching session on a key subject, issue or decision.

  • A series of 3 or 4 sessions x 1.5 hours (in-person or online)

Time to clearly establish your objectives, develop a coaching/mentoring relationship, space to think, reflect, and process. In these sessions we can discuss a variety of topics relating to your needs.


I have many free resources to get you started – including my ultimate thinking routine list and my free guide How to Look at Art (Slowly).

You can also listen to my weekly podcast or read my blog where I share techniques and tools to help you engage your audiences with art and ideas.

Self-paced learning with Claire Bown

A selection of courses and classes designed to equip you with the skills you need to create and lead engaging experiences around art and artefacts. Follow from wherever you are and at your own pace. 


My Visible Thinking in the Museum Online (VTMO) course will teach you to confidently lead lively discussions about art and museum objects to make your tours, guided discussions and educational programmes more engaging and interactive.

For individuals, VTMO is divided up into 3 separate online courses – VTMO BeginnersIntermediate, and Advanced. Join the waitlist to find out when the next courses are scheduled.
