PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY IN THE ACT

A Public Health Emergency has been declared in the ACT for the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. See the COVID-19 website for more information.

The National Portrait Gallery has a free online class to learn the language of portraiture.

Over 14 modules, iconic portraits from the NPG Collection are highlighted, and curatorial contexts and artistic insights shared along with other interactive elements. At the end of your deep dive, use your new knowledge to create a portrait and share it with loved ones and online.
