About this event
Create your own colourful family portraits at the Museum this school holidays.
Inspired by the historic portraits on display in the Museum, we’ll be creating some wild and wonderful portraits on canvas with the help of the humble squeegee.
Bring along a family picture to trace, or use those in our exhibition to create your own crazy family album.
This activity is designed for children to be dropped off at the beginning and picked up at the end of the session. Suitable for kids aged 6+.
