Following on from our success with the Take One Picture project over the last two years, in which, our pupils' work was exhibited at the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square, we developed work in response to this piece from their vast collection of beautiful paintings.
This year’s painting is Men of the Docks by George Bellows. The children spent time looking closely at this painting, finding out more about the painter, posing questions about the work and creating cross-curricular responses. During the first half term, they enjoyed developing their ideas and creating pieces of art inspired by this painting.
The direction of learning was, at all times, led by the pupils - this is their project and it comes from a place of extraordinary creativity and imagination. We hope you enjoy it.
