In the Classroom

Online Collections

Teachers and pupils can use the National Galleries of Scotland Online Collection to explore the work of hundreds of different artists. You can find art from the Scottish National Gallery, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art collections.

The collection spans from the early Renaissance to the present day and includes works by some of the most important artists in history, as well as portraits of Scottish heroes.


Explore one of our interactives or take a journey of a different kind on an eTour.


Schoolchildren are welcome to enter our annual art and creative-writing competitions.

Virtual Visits

National Galleries of Scotland is very excited about Glow. In the future, schools across Scotland will be able to make virtual visits to the national art collection through Glow.

We are starting to pilot these visits now so watch this space for more information.
