Little Book of Monsters Family Day!
National Galleries of Scotland Art Workshop (All ages): 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm
Are you a little monster already? If not, why not come along and let artists, Rosie and Paula from the National Galleries of Scotland, help to turn you into one – a friendly one of course!
Be inspired by some of the artworks in our online collection at nationalgalleries.org, and use lots of fun art materials to transform yourself, and maybe other family members too. You might not recognise each other at the end!
One of this year’s themes for the Tesco Bank Art Competition for Schools is Scary Creatures & Creepy Things. So you could let the music from this afternoon’s concert get you in the mood. As the competition will be 10 years old this year, we would love you to help us celebrate it by entering. Closing date 3 May 2013.
