It’s Our World

Anyone aged 4 – 19 years is invited to put themselves on the map by creating an artwork to celebrate where they live and uploading it onto the It’s Our World Gallery. The aim is to create the UK’s largest online collection of artwork mapping the British Isles, as seen through the eyes of the nation’s future custodians.

Take One Picture

Take One Picture - This stunning piece entitled ‘Changing landscapes’ was created by Elvetham Heath Primary School in Fleet, Hampshire.  It charts the journey and iconic landmarks from Fleet through Hampshire countryside to London. Each year ‘The National Gallery chooses a painting from the Gallery Collection and invites teachers and pupils to take inspiration from this painting and use it as a creative catalyst for learning across the curriculum.’ The chosen painting was Georges Seurat’s ‘Bathers at Asnieres’. The school were delighted to receive their Artsmark Gold Award shortly after the completion of the textile piece.
