Family Fun with Leighton #atHome

 

Due to the temporary closure of the Museums on 17 March 2020 due to Covid-19 outbreak (read the full statement), we have paused all our Family Fun workshops until further notice.

 

However, we have created a series of online resources and fun-filled activities to help you discover more about Frederic Leighton, his magical house and Victorian art and culture. We announce new resources every week on social media so don't forget to follow us and share your creations online!

 

Create and Make

 

Our Create and Make activity sheets explore famous artworks in Leighton House and encourage everyone to get creative. 

You will need art materials and ideally access to the internet for research and a printer if you want to keep the booklet.
