Making a Mark: Portraits

Children will discover some of our local heroes and how they helped shape the museum, local area and wider world such as Col. Spence of the 5th DLI and Robert Ropner, owner of Preston Hall and major shipbuilder during the late Victorian era.

They will explore different portraits (local and from the National Portrait Gallery, London), how to read them as sources and create work using sketching and specialist painting techniques.


The workshop lasts approximately 2 hours.

Suitable for Key Stages 2 and 3.

£50 per workshop (up to 30 children), plus £1.50 museum admission charge per child.
