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 holiday we’ll explore journeys big and small. Where have artists travelled and why did they go there? Step into a painting and travel somewhere new – without even leaving home!

The session will take place online, via Zoom, and will last about 45 minutes.

The session will be close-captioned.

Most suitable for ages 8+
