Art Activity

As well as our wonderful collection of objects we also have a large art collection at Whitby Museum. Many of our paintings are portraits like this one of Rev George Young.

Reverend Young was a minister, author and also, in 1823, one of the founding members of Whitby Literary and Philosphical Society who own and run Whitby Museum to this day.

For this week’s activity we would love to see your self portraits. You could use paints, crayons, felt tips or even collage. A great art activity if you are home schooling or just for a bit of fun.

Please send your portraits to
