April 6 - April 22
Come join the family illustration workshops, part of London Stories, a new exhibition featuring 100 illustrations that celebrate one of the world’s greatest cities and reveal some of the fascinating tales of London life past and present.
Children will be able to create their own stories and fabulous works of art during family illustration workshops. Working with three of the artists featured in the Museum’s current exhibition, Poster Prize for Illustration 2019: London Stories, young visitors can hear more about some of the stories highlighted in the exhibition and have a go at learning different illustration styles and creating a work of art to take home.
Meet Elly Jahnz
Thursday 11 to Tuesday 16 April , Drop in between 11:30 – 12:45 and 14:30 – 15:45 (approx. 20 mins)
Elly has ridden the number 35 bus many times and watched all sorts of characters, many of whom come to populate her illustrations. Hear about some of the fascinating personalities she has encountered along the way.
Make-and-take activity: Everyone on the bus or train has their own story. Have a go at illustrating a character to ride on the bus. Are they a spy, or a scientist? An astronaut or an acrobat?!
