Want to lose yourself in centuries of political and religious conflict and dark mysteries locked in snapshots from the past? Then the National Gallery in London is just the place for you. With an enormous collection of stunning artworks spanning over half a millennia, this is an amazing experience. No matter how many times I’ve been there, I haven’t even scratched the surface of the passion, the love, the hatred, the rebellion, the political intrigue and the social and emotional commentary that’s behind the huge collection of art in the National Gallery.
In this episode, we talk with Caroline Smith, head of educational programs at the National Gallery and explore how they engage students in one of the most amazing galleries in the world.
From the early Renaissance to legendary artists such as Monet and Van Gough and stunning works which take up entire walls, this is something which will awe and inspire students in ways that the classroom can never replicate.
