Games to play in the gallery

You don’t need to be an expert to look at or talk about art. You and your family can try these activities in any of the galleries.

Strike a pose

Get your child to secretly choose an artwork with a person in it. Once they have looked carefully at the pose, find a space in the room and encourage them to try to recreate the pose. The rest of the group can then try and spot the artwork the pose came from

Give us a clue

Encourage your child to find a portrait in the gallery that reminds them of someone in your group; someone famous; someone you all know (perhaps a neighbour or a friend). With the help of clues, the rest of the group can guess the chosen person

See it from their perspective

Get down to your child’s height and see what they see. The change in eye-level might make you think and feel differently
