Half Term Family Activity: Indian Delights at the National Portrait Gallery


The Indian Portrait is an outstanding exhibition, the first of its kind in the UK, telling the story of the Indian portrait over three centuries. Bringing together 60 stunning works from international collections, the exhibition celebrates the beauty, power and humanity of these works of art. This inspired series of half term activities at the National Portrait Gallery promises to bring to life the Indian Portrait collection and award-winning paintings by internationally acclaimed contemporary British artists Amrit and Rabindra Singh (“The Singh Twins”). Bring the whole family along for a week of dance, storytelling and painting activities.

Throughout the year, there are free “art trails” with drawing activities for children 5+, and on the third Saturday of every month at 10.30 and 13.30, children 3+ and their carers can join the free drop-in storytelling sessions.

Location:          National Portrait Gallery, St Martin's Place, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, London, WC2H 0HE
