Following the success of Take One Picture 2012, Avon House Prep School embarked on its latest project with The National Gallery. This year’s painting ‘Bathers at Asnières’ by George Seurat gave the pupils plenty to think about.
All pupils in Years 1-6 visited The National Gallery where a very interesting talk was given by the museum. Every class looked at a different aspect of the painting from making paper boats to recreating the bridge and steam train. Several children went home to ask their parents what they knew about ‘pointillism’ the process that Seurat favoured.
Head Teacher Mrs Amanda Campbell said “I am pleased that our children have been inspired through this project and now keep my fingers crossed that the gallery will like our work enough to exhibit it.”
