About the event

Head to the Samsung Centre for a brilliant art session - without any mess to clean up! You probably recognise a few of the sculptures at the British Museum, but did you know that they didn't always look the way they do now? In fact, lots of them used to be painted in bright colours.


Channel your inner artist and create your own colour schemes for some of the museum's iconic pieces using technology. As you work on your art you'll discover the techniques scientists use to learn about how these objects once looked, centuries ago.
