Artist of the Month

Each month we will be looking at an Artist, their work or an exhibition to inspire our children. The aim is to educate children on current artist work and the topics they are exploring through their chosen medium. Most month the artist or exhibition will be available for you to go and visit with your children and family. There is nothing quite like seeing a piece of artwork in its glory hanging on a wall in a gallery.
For February we are looking at Wildlife Photographer of the Year which is currently on display at the National History Museum. This exhibition is run yearly, with 16 categories as well as young Wildlife Photographer of the year. Entries are made from around the world from professional to novices and of all ages.  It is an extraordinary exhibition that not only includes photographs which take your breath away but ones that make you consider world events and affairs.
