Art - Take One Picture
« on: September 05, 2017, 02:17:27 PM »

Each year the National Gallery encourages primary school teachers and children to focus on one painting from the collection and respond creatively to its themes and subject matter, historical context, or composition.

Our programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses around the scheme offers teachers the opportunity to learn about the focus painting from Gallery experts, to explore it in depth with their peers, and to develop techniques and ideas for using paintings as a resource for curriculum-based learning.

The Gallery hosts the annual Take One Picture exhibition which showcases children’s responses to focus paintings. In order to be considered for the exhibition, schools submit to the Gallery examples of how a class, year group, or whole school used the painting to inspire creative learning across the curriculum. Schools are selected for exhibitions according to the following criteria:

Investigative approach: Pupil-led research
Process: Pupils have the opportunity to learn a new process inspired by the focus painting
Cross-curricular learning: The project must link subjects across the curriculum
Community: Involving the wider community
Focus painting links: All the work submitted must link back to the focus painting.
