How do we look at pictures, and what can a painting really tell us?
Make a virtual visit to the National Gallery from the comfort of your own home and get closer than ever to the collection. Meet Educator Ed Dickenson and learn fun tips and tricks to unlock secrets hidden in plain sight – even if you’re seeing a painting for the first time.
Discover how to figure out what a picture is all about through looking, questioning and voting together in this interactive session. Take away simple playful techniques to support an enjoyable, confident visit to the Gallery as a family.
This half-term we'll be stargazing and considering the mysteries of the night sky. What did people think when staring up at the stars, and what stories did they tell each other? Meet a cast of mythical gods and goddesses (some better behaved than others!) and put your detective skills to the test as we uncover the secrets in their paintings.
This event will be close-captioned.
The session will take place online, via Zoom, and will last about 45 minutes.
