How do I do the activities?

There are four activities to do in our logbook. Here are some tips on how to do them…

Discover the Arts

The arts are all around us! Music, Painting, Literature, Pottery and many more. Go on a scavenger hunt round your house, or round your local area and see how many you can find. Circle any art forms you can see in the Discover the Arts section of your logbook.

Part A – Take Part and Part B – Find out More

It is time to be creative! Take part in an arts activity and find out more about a famous artist. Every Sunday from 9  – 30 August at 11.30am we will be running our Families Live: Museum Mornings sessions. In each session you will find out about a famous artist, learn about a type of art and have a go at trying it yourself! From drawing, to photography and painting, there will be lots of activities you can do. Watch the video and use the information to help you fill out Parts A and B of your logbook.

If you can’t join us live, all our activities will be available on our Facebook page to do whenever works best for you. You can watch our new videos live and watch past activities here
