Live Event

Experience one of our fun, curriculum-focused learning programs live from the National Portrait Gallery.



What do portraits reveal about history?

How do artists capture historical events?

In this history-focused program we will explore portraits as historical sources, investigating time, place, people and artists perspectives. Students respond with writing, drawing, and discussion all the while practicing important skills of visual analysis as they consider the historical value of art and portraiture.
