Menu

Inspired by the Getty Museum's Recreating Art project, in response to the COVID-19 shutdown, museums around the world asked people to recreate their favourite artwork from household items.

We loved the response on social media and want to keep this project running whilst the Coronavirus pandemic continues to limit our physical access to museums and galleries.

The Challenge

We challenge you to create your favourite painting from The Pitmen Painters collection with materials you can find at home.

When creating your masterpiece PLEASE stick to the Government guidelines during the Coronavirus lockdown.

๐Ÿš˜ No unnecessary travel to locations outside of your own home.
๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘งProtect yourself and others and only create the art with people from your immediate household.

Stay Home Stay Safe Be Creative! ๐Ÿ˜€

For inspiration check out all of the artworks at Art UKย 

You can send us your creations via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or emailย
