Does a portrait need a face?

  • Discovery Session
  • Primary school
First session free, subsequent sessions £40 (up to 33 pupils)

Make, think and look closer at some of the portraits in your national collection, to figure out what makes the best portraits. Is it the likeness, the sitter or something else? We’ll challenge your assumptions about art and encourage you to think for yourself.

Every session will be different depending on where you lead it.

Adapted to suit any age group
