On Tuesday 5 June the Philosophy and Religion Department took Year 7 girls to the National Gallery as part of their Religion and Art project.
The girls spent time studying works from the mid-13th century to the early 1900s and soaked up the fantastic atmosphere the gallery had to offer. The gallery displays over 2,000 paintings and the variety and quality are wonderfully impressive. The girls also had the amazing opportunity to benefit from an hour-long lecture given to them by an expert at the gallery who explained some of the paintings in depth, highlighting some of their key (but easily missed) features. This gave the girls greater appreciation of the art and skills to build on when it comes to their projects.
