Advancing an Appreciation for the Arts

The National Gallery

The National Gallery was established in 1824 when the British government purchased 38 paintings from the estate of arts patron and collector John Julius Angerstein. Located in Trafalgar Square in the heart of central London, the museum is a major British cultural institution. The National Gallery's collection contains more than 2,300 masterpieces from the 1200s through the 1800s. In addition to collecting and displaying works of art, the museum conducts extensive research and encourages visitors to participate in educational programming. Through the Collaborative Doctoral Partnership Scheme, doctoral students from United Kingdom universities have the opportunity to conduct collaborative research in partnership with the museum.

The National Gallery also plans year-round educational programming for young students, teachers, and families. One such opportunity for involvement is the signature program Take One Picture, which provides teachers with curriculum to teach students about a focus painting. Each summer, the museum displays children's artistic responses to the focus painting for visitors to view.
