It’s gallery takeover time for families!

Join us for a special family celebration of our new Modern Art and St Ives display.

Get creative with Fish Printing Fun, bring artworks to life with Tough Dough’s Animation Station and join author Michael Bird on a journey through 40,000 years of art, as he reads from his acclaimed children's book Vincent's Starry Night and Other Stories.  

Animation station:
Walk through the galleries and bring the art works to life at the animation station.  Artists from Tough Dough will be working to create a live animated film. Activities include making characters, cutting out, sticking, drawing and filming for all the family.  Watch your artwork come to life on the Big Screen!

Michael Bird:
Take a journey through 40,000 years of art, from cave painters to the present day. Michael Bird will read from his acclaimed children's book.

This Super Sunday is part of the HLF St Ives Legacy Town Project.
