The Last Of The Clan ‘The Last of the Clan’ is a famous painting that hangs in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. It was painted by Thomas Faed. Thomas Faed is a famous artist who has many paintings hanging worldwide. He lived from 1826- 1900. Thomas Faed was one of the most successful and famous painters of his time. We did ‘I See, I Think, I Wonder’ for this painting. We said we saw a man on a horse. We thought it was either before or after a war. Also, we wondered when the painting was painted.
Kilts are not skirts! Tartan is Scotland’s national dress. We wear it to occasions such as weddings and other celebrations. You can get it in all colours. All colours symbolise something. For instance, yellow means sun. Also men that fought centuries ago in wars wore red tartan to cover up wounds or blood. This is a tartan we created for our school. The colours are the colours of our school uniform.
