  • Year 8 visit the National Portrait Gallery

    Published 13/11/17

    The Art department recently led a visit to The National Portrait Gallery.  Below is a review from some Year 8 students.

    "I loved going to The National Portrait Gallery as the whole experience was very well organised, fun and educational. All instructions given at the beginning of the day were clear and well-structured so we (as students) knew what to expect. When we arrived we went inside the gallery and were given an interesting and interactive lecture in the Ondaatje lecture theatre, about what portraits are. The extremely kind member of the gallery staff made us think and share our opinions. Additionally, she encouraged us to expand on our answers in order to express ourselves fully. Then we got the chance to view and embrace the pieces of art, which was fascinating as we got to see art from the Stuart and Victorian eras. We also saw work by artists such as Julian Opie who we are studying in class. Over all, my year and I had an incredible time visiting the National Portrait Gallery."
