St Benedict's artwork at the National Gallery!
Artwork by children in Years 4 and 6 at St Benedict's has been selected for the National Gallery's 'Take One Picture' exhibition this summer.
An imposing horse sculpture made of aluminium plate, and a collection of medieval helmet decorations made by pupils in Years 4 and 6 at St Benedict's are included in a National Gallery exhibition this summer.
The gallery's ‘Take One Picture’ scheme encourages children throughout the UK to create artwork inspired by a particular painting; this year, it was Paolo Uccello’s 15th century painting, The Battle of San Romano.
Children at St Benedict’s have responded creatively to the painting’s themes, subject matter and historical context throughout the year. Their artwork has been so impressive that it has been selected for the ‘Take One Picture’ exhibition: Year 6’s magnificent 'War Horse' – a collaborative project involving the entire year-group – and Year 4’s medieval helmet decorations will be on display throughout the summer in one of the world’s finest art galleries.
The exhibition is in the Sunley Room until 12th September and admission is free.
