Art Trek looks at 3-D art

The National Gallery’s Art Trek programme acts as a free drop-in session where children can view the gallery’s current exhibits and learn different artistic techniques.

Today, Tuesday, 6 October, children are invited to the gallery for an Art Trek event to learn about 19th century Jamaican landscape prints. After completing a gallery worksheet, kids will create their own pop-up landscape using the three-dimensional techniques used in tunnel books.

This activity will guide kids in identifying the background, middle ground and foreground of photographs and paintings.

Art Trek is held on the first Tuesday of each month from 3.30pm to 5pm for children aged six to 11 years.
