Taking inspiration from Victorian art and architecture, explore line, tone, texture, colour and composition, through the traditional genres of still life, landscape and portraiture
The photographs we currently store on our mobile phones could be regarded as part of a tradition that dates back centuries. In Victorian times, many people carried painstakingly painted miniature portraits of their loved ones around with them, sealed into clasps. This activity revives this antiquated practice, while providing opportunities for children to develop their fine motor skills.
