Earlier this year, Galt asked famous contemporary artist Ed Chapman to recreate Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe portrait using our arts and crafts materials. The result was a stunning Marilyn Masterpiece, which just showed the fantastic artwork that can be achieved with the right supplies and a little bit of imagination!

We believe it’s important to inspire and educate young painters and artists, so have put together a series of ‘Mini Masterpieces’ for them to recreate their own modern works of art.  

Each month, the template for a traditional masterpiece from the world’s most loved artists will be available to download from our Activity Zone.  Budding young artists can then either follow our step-by-step guide or use their imagination to make their own original masterpiece!
