Picturing the Park

Our Picturing the Park monthly art sessions have been wonderful. They’re so popular we’re running them over winter too! Don’t be put off by the winter weather! We’ll work outside when we can (so wrap up warm) and will create displays inside, or use the beauty of the collections within the Museum, when the weather defeats us.
