Restor(y)ing Paintings

Pippa Couch,Jim Grant

This article describes a project which began with an art gallery created in a nursery where over 90% of the children were bilingual speakers. Parents were invited to discuss the paintings with the children, create their own stories based on the pictures and record them in home languages. Finally the children and their parents visited the National Gallery where they shared their interpretations.Thanks to The English Association for allowing UKLA to reproduce the article.
