Have you got a budding artist waiting to bloom? Is school getting in the way of that all important afternoon of colouring? Make the most of the half-term holiday at the National Art Gallery, where kids can get creative in fun workshops, and tots can play in a relaxing environment.

Stay and Play
28th & 29th October, 11am-3pm, under 5s

Take the little ones to a drop in session at The Learning Gallery, where they will be able to play in an environment inspired by Peter Paul Rubens's A View of Het Steen in the Early Morning . The painting from 1636 depicts the manner house in Antwerp where Rubens spent the last five years of his life. Considering the artist had a shaky hand due to gout, the detail of the painting is amazing.

Talk and Play
28th & 29th October, 11am-11.30am, under 5s

Set to the same backdrop of Rubens's countryside scene, Anya, a costumed character will introduce children to language through song, talk, and play.

Walk and Draw
28th & 29th October, 3rd November, 10.30am-11.30am, 1pm-2pm, 3pm-4pm, 5-11 year olds

Take a walk with Al Johnson on a tour of the gallery, where you will learn about the techniques artists used to create gestures and body movement. You will then have a chance to try out these techniques for yourself in a drawing session.

Artist's Apprentice Workshop: Silverpoint Drawing
27th-29th October, 3rd November, 11am-1pm, 2pm-4pm, 7-12 year olds, £7

Did you know that you could draw with silver? Become an artist's apprentice and learn fifteenth century techniques.
