In the Frame

How many princes and princesses are there in this royal portrait? Why is one child dressed differently? What are the dogs called?

During this interactive session, delivered in the the King's Drawing Room, we investigate one of the Royal Collection’s most well-known portraits, The five eldest children of Charles I, 1637, by Van Dyck.

Through the collecting of ideas, the developing of characters and role play activities the pupils bring this portrait to life,  which will then inspire them to create their own artwork directly in front of the real painting.

 

'This was a really interactive talk, the children really enjoyed it.'
