Check out Painting Explorers with The National Gallery!

Get behind the paintings at The National Gallery!

Van_Gogh_Museum_-_Sunflowers_1889If you love painting and getting creative, listen up! We have a brand-new series on Fun Kids called Painting Explorers.

There’s something unusual in The National Gallery at night-time. Sometimes, the paintings come to life! Join Van Gogh’s sunflowers as they explore some of their favourite paintings in the gallery, from dramatic battle scenes with rearing horses to god-like portraits and glittering angels.

There are loads of secret things to discover about each of the paintings. Some paintings have been stored in castles covered in bat poo (yuck!), some have been slashed with knives during vandalism, and some are over 400 years old!

You can listen to Painting Explorers by downloading our podcast. Click here to explore!
