Let`s go to Scotland!

 

This month we're back in Scotland where we visit the National Gallery in Edinburgh to look at the paintings there and learn more about them. There is also an interesting virtual tour of the art works by Scottish artists in an Edinburgh auction house, Lyon and Turnbull.  We then go to Glasgow, to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, to watch Avril Paton talking about her tenement painting, 'Windows in the West'.
