The National Portrait Gallery in London tells the fascinating stories of people and their lives. The Gallery has a vast amount of original Tudor portraits from the very large to the very strange. It is free to enter and this year they are running free summer schools for 14 to 21-year-old where all materials are provided. Imagine learning to draw in such an amazing place. It’s free but places fill up fast so booking is essential.
