You can visit our Art-tastic exhibition from Tuesday 22nd June! Book a visit here.

Does a picture paint a thousand words?  Discover our colourful and entertaining family-friendly exhibition online to explore the stories hidden within some of our fantastic paintings. Think about what you can see or how they make you feel.  Then fire up your imagination and use your powers of detection to create your own stories. We’ve got some ideas to get you thinking and we will soon be able to welcome you back to St Andrews Museum to enjoy the exhibition in person from June 22nd 2021.

With lots of lovely paintings and other interesting items to inspire you, as well as quizzes and great ideas for simple things to make and do at home or in the classroom, the exhibition will be worth visiting in person. Why not also have a go at our two new Museum Makes, inspired by the paintings in Art-tastic and scroll down for some other inspiration and activities:


Turn art detective with our Art-tastic Quiz, with challenges ranging from investigating the colours of the rainbow to discussing your favourite painting. Get creative with our cute colouring sheet inspired by ‘Baba and Billy‘ or download the instructions on how to make a 3D magpie, inspired by the one in our painting.
