Default History of Magic Gallery


Across the corridor from the History of Magic classroom is located a room full of historic and current memorabilia. After all, the present is simply history in the making. Many of the objects found in this room are there for students to view, touch, or even interact with. Anything not permitted to be handled without permission will be found under glass.

A small couch and several comfortable chairs are found in a circular arrangement near the window overlooking the grounds. A short, yet very full, bookshelf is situated next to the seating arrangement to provide a reading and study area.

Magical portraits are hung on the walls throughout the room. Some are notable people throughout history, some are more recent, including a few that Professor Finch has painted himself. Try engaging one in conversation. One never knows what historical secrets the subject of a portrait might have, especially if they were witness to certain events.

Several Egyptian amulets are found in a display case, as well as a few old maps, a self-stirring cauldron, and an ornate box that mysteriously doesn't seem to open. On a table at the other end of the room, one might find a full set of chocolate frog cards, a wizard's chess set, and a pair of extendable ears. Take a look around and see what other treasures you can find to learn about History of Magic up close.

With the lessons she had been receiving in magical portrait painting and a summer full of doodling creatures and forests Hady had gotten a fair amount of practice. Being back at Hogwarts though was a little tougher now that she had lessons once again as well as homework and other activities to fit in. So far she was trying to manage it all.

Hady had meant to swing by Professor Finch's office and ask about their painting sessions but somehow the girl had ended up here instead. It had been sometime since she had been in here. Now that she was learning more about what it took to paint these portraits her appreciation for them had grown ten fold. As it was she was standing before one of the paintings studying the colors and detailing.

It couldn't hurt to get to know one of two of the people inside the portraits either if they wanted to talk to her.

As much as he enjoyed having summers off, at least in the official sense, Ansley knew that it was time to get back into a more regulated routine. Early mornings were difficult to get back into the habit and he was feeling a little flustered trying to fit everything he needed to do into his schedule. At least he hadn't had to do any grading yet. That always seemed to have to wait till last minute until he got his things caught up again.

He was actually having a rather productive day today though, all things considered, and he had even managed to check out a few books from the library that he thought could provide inspiration for future lessons. While he looked through one of the books, a certain passage reminded him of Artemesia and he thought of checking in on her. Ansley always had a soft spot for the first portrait he had painted and he was happy to have found a more permanent place for her. But she hadn't been in her frame the last time he was in the gallery before classes began.

Carrying his stack of books, he decided to stop into the gallery before heading to his office. And he saw that he was not alone. "Hadleigh," he smiled giving her an acknowledging nod as he stepped further into the room and came up behind her. "Was there anything in here I could help you with or did you just come in to look around?" He did set up the place for students and staff to explore artifacts on their own, but if she had any questions he'd be happy to answer them. Otherwise, he was just making conversation.

It was sad to say that in all honesty she had no clue who a few of the portraits were still. In her defense though things got very busy once lessons began and there wasn't always time to meet every single being in the entire castle...however she might have tried. Especially these past few years when things got tougher, lessons and homework got longer and grades became harder to maintain.

Stepping to the left and eying one of the portraits Hadleigh jumped slightly when someone spoke to her. At first she hadn't been sure if it had been a portrait or someone else but a small turn of her head to look where the voice had come from gave her the answer. "Hello Professor," she greeted warmly with a light smile. "Oh no, I don't think so. Not yet anyhow I'm just looking around." Only looking. Not disturbing anything!

She was reminded that she had wanted to ask the man something. Turning around to face the professor and tucking a lock of her hair behind her ear as she looked up at him. "Professor, I was wondering if you still had time to continued our portrait painting lessons this term?" She had been practicing all summer long every chance she got!

Oh, had he startled her? Ansley hadn't meant to but he couldn't help the slight chuckle that left his lips. "Oh, alright," he nodded as she said she was simply looking around. "That's what this room and the things in it are for - to explore a little bit of history on your own, if you'd like. Anything that's not behind glass can be touched too." Sometimes people needed to handle artifacts to get a better look and understanding. And as long as it wasn't fragile, it was fine with him.

Ansley's eyes wandered over to Artemesia's frame. Hmm. Still wasn't there. That wasn't too troubling yet, but he did wonder where she might be. His eyes snapped back to Hadleigh again as she spoke. "Oh, yes," he nodded. "I was actually going to ask you if you were still interested in continuing. I am if you are. And I think you acquired a pretty decent foundation last term, we can probably move on to more advanced skills if you'd like." It was a little more difficult, but he found her to grasp onto concepts pretty quickly that he had confidence that she could handle it.

Hady smiled at the man's chuckle. "It's been awhile since I've stopped in here to see the portraits. I was actually hoping that if I studied some of the portraits it might help with when I make one of my own." Ideas. Detailing. That type of thing. Whatever could help her make the very best portraits she could. She striped for the best.

When Ansley said he would like to continue and thought she was ready to move on with more advanced things the girl beamed. "Yes Sir, I would. I've been sketching a lot overy the break and doing my best to paint whenever I can as well." She had some of the sketches and painting with her to show him as well. "Is Mondays still a good day?" Best to get her days straightened out quickly.

That's what Ansley liked to hear, that someone was trying to learn from experiences and observations even when they were not actively practicing something. It made him think even more that he had made the right choice in allowing her to be a portrait painting apprentice. "Good," he nodded. "Even master painters when they are not creating art often spend much of their time simply observing people's faces and expressions. It gives them much more insight into painting their own work." The best artists were always trying to learn from their observations, even if it was in an indirect way. It could work with observing the completed portraits as well.

He smiled more as Hadleigh said that she would like to continue their painting sessions. He enjoyed teaching that and was glad that she enjoyed it. "Oh, I'm glad to hear that. Any bit of practice you can get will surely help." He was eager to see what kind of progress she'd made and how far she could get this term. "Mondays, same time, works for me... how about you?" He could probably rearrange things if she needed with her schedule, but that would work for him if it did her.

This was a good thing to know. Hadleigh smiled as she listened to Ansley explain why a lot of true painters did exactly what she was doing right then. "That's what I was hoping to get out of this Sir, all the different colors, shading and facial expressions. There's a real lot to get right," she replied with a small nod of her head.

Mondays at the same time. Perfect. "It works perfectly for me." And just to make sure she pulled out a small parchment from the pocket of her robes and looked it over. It happened to be her small calendar on which she kept different reminders. "Yes, yes Mondays are good." Pulling out a quill as well from her pocket she quickly made note of the day and time. It was set now. "When I come on Monday shall I bring my sketches and things from the summer?" So he could see how she was doing and what she needed to work on still.

"Well, good, I'm glad," Ansley nodded approvingly as Hadleigh spoke. "There's always something that can be learned from others." Even the experts knew that and it was good that his student was so open to that as well. It made teaching a lot easier. And good, their old scheduled time seemed to work for this term as well. That would be convenient to keep to the same routine. "Oh, sure. I'd like to see them." He wouldn't mind seeing how she progressed through her sketches and if she needed any direction in that area. "I think we can talk about inviting one of your friends to start coming as well to do some life studies." But that didn't have to start right away unless she was comfortable with that.

His eyes drifted to one of the portrait frames, squinting a bit to see that it was still empty. "Have you been in here a while, Hadleigh? Did you notice if Miss Timms was in her portrait before I got here?" Surely she remembered her from class last term? It was still a bit concerning that he hadn't yet seen her.

There was nothing at all wrong with learning what others had to offer. It's how babies learned by watching those around them and trying it themselves. "There is," she agreed readily with a firm nod of her head. Probably one reason why she got herself into so many different things. Hady smiled. "I'll bring them on Monday then to show you." It wasn't to much as she had been incredibly busy of the summer but what she had managed weren't to bad honestly. Anything he could offer her on those would be a large help.

Life studies? A-a friend? "What do you mean Sir, what friend?" Cue pure confusion right about now. Why would one of her friends come to the portrait painting sessions?

Seeing Ansley shift his attention towards one of the other portraits Hady looked that way as well to see who he was looking at. The frame was empty however leaving her unsure of whom had been there for several seconds as she went through those portraits she knew. Before she could figure it out a name was spoken to her. Ohhh! The women he had painted himself! Of course! "Only a few minutes before you arrived Sir. And no I'm sorry but I haven't seen her, shall I keep an eye out for her?" Was she missing?!

Okay, it was all set... Though it seemed that Hadleigh was somewhat confused about something that he said. Did she know what life study drawing or painting was? Maybe he took for granted that she just knew what some of the terminology was without really explaining himself. "Oh, well, we will need someone to paint from life to really start painting portraits." Usually someone sat for him while he painted, though it was a rather long process that he often supplemented with reference images. "I just thought that you might be more comfortable with a friend, but we can invite one of the teachers if you'd rather." Or he could sit for her since he'd already be there,but he'd rather be more focused on observing her technique and guiding her.

Hmm. So Hadleigh hadn't seen Artemesia either. Though it sounded that she hadn't been there all that long anyway to really see. "Oh, alright, I was just wondering... I hadn't seen her since school started and I was just a little concerned. Last year was her first year at Hogwarts.." It probably wasn't anything though, but she was a little important to him. Not only had he painted her himself, but she was the first magical portrait he had ever painted. "Sure, if you wouldn't mind... I'm sure it's nothing, I was just wondering how she's been faring here."

"Oh!," Hadleigh laughed softly at herself. How didn't she know that's what he had meant? Either her terminology was really off or she just hadn't thought of that. Either way what Ansley had meant was now fully clear to the sixth year. "I can take care of that Professor, I'm sure one of my friends wouldn't mind sitting in on this if it helps me." She wasn't sure who she would ask yet but she had a large selection of friends to choose from. "Did you want me to bring someone along on Monday or not yet?" Did she have time to find who would be best? A friend close to her would be much easier then a Professor in her opinion.

Hmm, that was odd then, no? "Maybe she's made a few friends she likes speaking with or she's exploring her new home?" Hady offered with a small thoughtful smile. The portraits spoke with one another she knew that much but she didn't know how often. "I'm sure she's alright and will return to her own frame soon but I will keep my eyes open for her just in case." It couldn't hurt and with all the running around she did for lessons and different training as well as practices chances were decent she might spot her somewhere.

Ansley smiled at Hadleigh's surprised laughter. Clearly it had just been a misunderstanding and his explanation seemed to clear up just what he meant. "Alright that works," he nodded. She would know better than him who of her friends could sit for a while without getting too impatient. "Uhh, maybe not this first time. We'll work out some details, and then we can maybe start with modeling the week after." Yeah, he thought they could review and do some basic things first.

Ansley shrugged and nodded. He knew it was likely no big deal, but since they were here talking about portraits and hers was empty, he thought he'd mention it. "I'm sure that's all it is. It's just that before I brought her here, she just hung in my studio and there were not many other portraits around, at least not permanently. And none that she could go visit. But maybe she'd having fun exploring." He laughed a bit realizing how ridiculous he probably sounded being concerned over a portrait. But she was rather important to him.

Working with one of her friends would be best. Clearly that was the obvious choice anyhow. The choice that made her the most comfortable. Being as she was still somewhat new to the world of portrait sketching having someone she knew and was somewhat close with sitting in and allowing her to sketch them was a good idea. "That sounds like a good idea." Total agreement. Even though she had done some sketching over the summer it hadn't been everyday or anything extensive. A small review was a good idea.

Hadleigh didn't know the portrait well if really much at all but if the women had a chance to get to know the other portraits she would be silly not to. It must getting boring hanging around in just one single frame all the time. "Professor, can all magical portraits move about to other frames just so their in the same place?" Like the castle or a home for instance. "Is it best to give them their own frame or would say a couple like husband and wife rather be kept together?" Very curious question right there.

Good, they both seemed to be on the same page now and Ansley was looking forward to their Monday evening painting sessions again. Maybe he could get in a little of his own art done at the same time. He was just about to finalize their plans and head out when Hadleigh had a question about portraits for him.

"Well, I'm sure a husband and wife would like to be kept together," he said after a moment's thought. "Though a portrait can move from frame to frame, they typically think of their own frame as their home. And they tend to only move to other frames within the same location, though sometimes they go to other paintings of themselves located elsewhere." Did that make sense? Sometimes the limitations got a little tricky with portraits.

Now Hady hadn't meant to prolong the Professor from continuing on with whatever it was he needed to be doing but it was a question she had been thinking about. So while it was still on her mind there was no better time for her to ask it and receive an answer.

Ah, this was very good to know. It was exactly the type of answer she had wanted and would serve her well when she was ready to paint her first portrait someday. "Thank you Sir, I'll certainly be keeping that in mind." Along with everything else he had already told her about portraits. It was all important and would serve her well when it came time to figure out what she was going to do. Right now it wasn't a big deal though as she still had plenty of time.

Even if he had given Hadleigh a somewhat vague answer, she seemed to be satisfied with it. If she had any more curiosities about portraits, he was sure he could answer them during their weekly painting sessions.

"Well, I probably should get these books put away." Even though there weren't too many, his arms were starting to get tired and he didn't want to keep Hadleigh any longer anyway. "I'll see you this Monday then." And also in class of course. "Feel free to look around at the artifacts though." That was what the room was for of course and he did want his students to enjoy it.

And with that, he gave her a smile and nodded, and he headed out to his office.

Hady smiled softly nodding her head. "I'll be there Sir." There was noway she would be missing it unless like something huge happened which she doubted. Come Monday evening she would be there with her sketch pad.

She planned on looking around for just a little bit longer. Maybe that portrait women would return. If not she could always just check out everything else before making her way to her next lesson.
