Gallery

Inspired by Soane...

The Gallery is a place to showcase work by pupils who have been inspired by the Museum. If your class has visited the Museum and produced stunning work as a result, why not display their work here?

Please contact the Head of Education for more details.

In July 2009, pupils from three schools in Waltham Forest took part in a week-long summer school. Pupils visited Sir John Soane's Museum to see the famous 'A Rake's Progress' by William Hogarth.

Pupils identified as 'Gifted and Talented' took part in a day-long workshop in their school. The group was introduced to Hogarth's 'A Rake's Progress' and then worked in pairs to create an updated version of the eight original paintings in a manga style. The pupils worked with Rob Deas, a Manga Artist based in North Lincolnshire.

Between January and April 2009, pupils from the LCF designed masks inspired by Sir John Soane's Museum and by traditional Venetian carnival masks. The project was linked to the Soane's yearly Sarcophagus Party, with winning masks selected by Alexandra Shulman, Editor of UK Vogue.
