Event:
National Portrait Gallery program for kids 6 months-3 years
When you think of a gallery, you traditionally think of a minimalistic, silent space where hard-core art enthusiasts hang out. The National Portrait Gallery is throwing this notion on its head by encouraging more children into the gallery through their Little Faces program.

The Little Faces program gives parents and carers with young children (6 months to 3 years) the opportunity to explore the gallery and engage in age-appropriate activities.

The winter sessions will explore the portrait of Charles Teo 2012 by Adam Chang and focus on exploring faces, colour and sound.
