About the course

Enjoy time together in a world-renowned collection of paintings and develop shared ownership of the Take One Picture project.

The focus painting for 2013–14 is Saint Michael Triumphs over the Devil,
1468, by Bartolomé Bermejo.

Through a combination of short presentations, discussion and a Gallery workshop, the day offers the opportunity to:

  • experience the National Gallery’s collection first hand with a particular emphasis on the focus painting
  • develop strategies for developing pupils’ skill and confidence in looking at and responding to paintings
  • network with other teachers from across the United Kingdom
  • explore the pedagogy and practice of using a National Gallery painting as a rich context for learning across the curriculum
  • consider ways of working with the local community and planning for learning outside the classroom

‘The day was fantastic and inspiring and we gained so much as a school’ [Head Teacher, February 2012]
