Year 13 Fine Art and Textiles students visited The Scottish National Gallery, the Scottish Portrait Gallery and the Scottish National Museum this month to investigate and refine their understanding of a range of artwork after visiting the exhibition.


Students experienced seeing paintings by internationally renowned artists such as Vermeer, Titian, Rembrandt, Velázquez and the Impressionists. They also explored the newly opened Scottish galleries where they encountered the very best of Scottish art from 1800 to 1945 and discovered the work of pioneering artists such as William McTaggart, Anne Redpath, Phoebe Anna Traquair, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Boys.  ​


A neo-Gothic palace dedicated to exploring various aspects of the Scottish story, this gallery is a hidden gem right in the heart of Edinburgh. The art tells you stories of the land and its people, through the medium of imagery. Students were guided in discussion of the processes they observed and reflected on the content, form, process and mood in paintings. This was an excellent opportunity to work with the galleries and understand more about the paintings and costume design.


Well done to all involved!
