This workshop is led by museums staff.
Look at elegant Tudor portraits, discover hidden meanings and find out how a portrait can convey messages about the sitter through pose, composition, background and objects.
During this full day workshop, pupils will:
- discuss imagery in Tudor portraits from the sitter and the artist - why were portraits made? What do they show about the people in the pictures?
- learn about and understand the importance of portraits as historical evidence in finding out about life in Tudor times - what do they tell us about Tudor rich and poor?
- create a Tudor style self-portrait by practise ‘pouncing’, a Tudor method of copying portraits and develop their own Tudor portrait using mixed media.
