Take One Picture Continuing Professional Development session

Norwich Castle, dates by request, free

Take One Picture is an approach for primary schools developed by the National Gallery, and Norwich Castle is delighted to be its regional partner. One painting is used as inspiration for meaningful and creative cross-curricular work. We offer an introductory CPD session to explain the approach and give some practical examples to use in the classroom. It’s a fantastic opportunity for whole-school projects such as Arts Week as well as smaller-scale creative classroom work. The artworks currently available at the Castle are The Paston Treasure and John Crome’s Norwich River: Afternoon.View Take One Picture teachers’ packs.
