About

A core element of the Take One Picture scheme is to provide primary teachers with opportunities to share ideas, learning, and practice. This course is planned specifically with this in mind, offering an opportunity for primary teachers working across the UK to network with peers and to develop ownership of the Take One Picture project.

The focus painting for 2018–19 is Men of the Docks by George Bellows.
