It's never too late to participate!

Since March 2020 we've hosted some fantastic artist led workshops inspired by the famous St Luke Drawing the Virgin and Child painting by Workshop of Dieric Bouts. 

Many young people have joined us and taken part from around the world, some of which have been exhibited in The Bowes Museum. Don't miss out on these resources, download and use them in the classroom, at home or at the community centre. You can share your results with us by using the hashtag #InspiredByBouts and tagging @TheBowesMuseum.
