Prep I visit the National Gallery

Posted: 25th November 2021

A day enjoying art.

Mrs Van Der Merwe reports on the artistic researches of Prep I, who recently visited one of London’s major galleries:

‘Not only are Prep I delightful artists in their own right, they are also very appreciative of the art of others. On Friday 19th November they set out for the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square to enrich their R.E. learning with a storytelling workshop based on the painting, ‘The Adoration of the Shepherds’,  painted around 1640 by the Roman Artist, Guido Reni.

While they were at the gallery, Prep I also went to visit a few of the paintings from one their favourite stories at the moment called, ‘Katie’s Picture Show’, by James Mayhew that is all about the paintings in the National Gallery. They were delighted to see the original artworks of The Umbrellas by Pierre Auguste Renoir, The Hay Wain by John Constable and paid delightful visit to see Madame Moitessier by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, a big favourite in Prep I.

Prep I finished off their visit with a delicious packed lunch from our kitchens and headed back to school where there was time for a quick play before home time.
