A New Portrait for Bath – a celebration of work with local schools
We have been running an exciting Learning and Engagement Programme inspired by an unfinished study of a young man called Arthur Atherley on the verge of leaving Eton, by Sir Thomas Lawrence (1769-1830).
Come and see the exciting results of our work with local schools…
Take One…Portrait of Arthur Atherley
Clore Learning Space
An exhibition showcasing local primary schoolchildren’s creative responses to the portrait. ‘Take One’ is a programme developed by the National Gallery to support primary school teachers to develop exciting cross-curricular projects focusing on one museum object.
Artist & School Leavers’ Project
Six artists teamed up with six local sixth forms. They used the portrait to explore aspirations and anxieties about leaving school and created six new artworks in response to the students.
