Gainsborough’s House museum and art gallery was taken over by children last week as 57 youngsters learnt the skills of Thomas Gainsborough as they created their own masterpieces.

The children learnt about how Gainsborough layered his paints to make his portraits before making their own layered landscape collages and a 3D model.

Steph Parmee, learning officer at Gainsborough’s House, said: “It was really busy, but it was lovely to see the gallery filled with children.”
