Getting to Know You
Site: Lotherton Hall
This workshop is led by museums staff.
What kind of people had their portraits painted? Find out the answers by studying some of Lotherton's wonderful portraits and costumes. Activities include role play and creating a portrait through investigating materials, colours, textures, mannerisms and facial features.
Pupils will gain an insight into why people had their portraits painted. In smaller groups pupils will complete investigations into creating their own portraits. These smaller group fun activities will focus on what mannerisms tell us about a person and how we can communicate our personalities through posing.
This two hour workshop:
- shows how portraits communicate more than the way someone looks
- promotes learning through role play
- develops understanding of historical portraits
- encourages problem solving by trying something new and taking risks
- shows how art can communicate ideas
