Venus Rising eTour: A Virtual Consultation Project
To encourage young people to develop the ability to analyse art and write up their thoughts, the National Galleries developed an online interactive learning activity. While highlighting specific images of the ancient goddess Venus, it poses general questions about representations of beauty, tailored to the 12-18 age group.

The online activity allows virtual visitors to:

  • browse through ten representations of Venus, including Titian’s painting
  • select specific images
  • discover information about each of the selected images and the artist who made it
  • explore other works by the artists
  • look up special terms
  • answer questions relating to the general themes explored
  • submit their views to the National Galleries to be displayed online
