About

Our current CPD sessions focus on The Finding of Moses by Orazio Gentileschi. 

In this huge painting, we are shown a new telling of an old story – a celebration of hope, kindness, and the beginning of a great journey, all told through the actions of women. Gentileschi updated the story for a 17th-century audience to celebrate the start of a new life.

This half-day session will take place via Zoom, and will last 3.5 hours with short breaks.

These online CPD sessions offer the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the Take One Picture programme, with tips on project planning and submission 
  • Investigate strategies for developing pupils’ skills and confidence in responding to paintings, focusing on looking, questioning, storytelling and drawing 
  • Learn about the focus painting and artist from Gallery Educators 
  • Explore the pedagogy and practice of using a painting as a rich context for learning across the curriculum
  • Receive a link to all PowerPoints and classroom resources shown, and a high-resolution image file of the focus painting.

If you have any questions, please contact: takeonepicture@ng-london.org.uk.

About Take One Picture

Take One Picture is our national programme for primary schools, which aims to inspire a lifelong love of art and learning.

Every year, we take one picture from the collection to inspire cross-curricular work in primary classrooms.

Activity around each focus painting takes place in four stages, culminating in an annual exhibition of children's work at the Gallery.
