Put Yourself in the Portrait Gallery 4 Mar - 9 Apr 2017

Children are the focus of our portrait gallery, with a collection of 12 portraits by acclaimed Irish artist Brian Maguire alongside a range of self-portraits drawn by children.

Having seen all these, you will be able to use our portrait drawing stations to draw your own self-portraits to add to the collection.
