Last month, parents and children from Free Range Education, a Milton Keynes home educators group, visited MK Gallery and participated in a workshop inspired by our current exhibition Pushwagner: Soft City.

 

Working with artist Aaron Head, the children learnt basic illustration techniques using coloured paper, pencils and tracing paper; which they then used to make their own graphic novel style portrait poster.

 

Of all the self-portraits produced, gallery staff judged three year old Finbarr’s artwork (pictured) the best, winning him a set of three Hervé Tullet children’s books from the Gallery Shop as a prize.

 

MK Gallery Shop stocks a range of creative art books and materials suitable for children.
