London, United Kingdom
11 March 2014, 11:00 - 16:00
A Free Study Day for Teachers and Museum Learning Staff Organised by the National Portrait Gallery in collaboration with the Imperial War Museum, in connection with the Gallery’s exhibition The Great War in Portraits.
Historian Dan Todman and curator Paul Moorhouse give keynote talks, followed by a chance to visit the exhibition during an extended lunchtime (lunch not provided). In the afternoon individuals that have indicated an art focus will have the opportunity to meet with a contemporary War Artist and explore ways of accessing issues around war and conflict in the classroom and those with an history focus will experience working with three different types of evidence – artefacts, portraits and film.
The National Portrait Gallery houses the finest collection of portraits in the world, offering a unique insight into the men and women who have shaped British culture from the Middle Ages to the present day. Featuring some of the most iconic and instantly recognisable faces in British history, from Elizabeth I to David Beckham, the National Portrait Gallery has something for everyone. The Gallery offers a varied programme of special events, which encourage discussion, debate and creativity for all ages and interests.
