Take One Picture

Works in the exhibition

See how primary school children were inspired by Joseph Wright of Derby

Every year, as part of our Take One Picture programme, we invite primary schools nationwide to focus on one of our paintings and respond creatively to its themes and subject matter, historical context, or composition. 

For the 2019 exhibition, schools responded to Joseph Wright of Derby's 'An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump':
