If you are looking for some inspiration to keep families and children engaged with art during lockdown - or holidays - take a look at the free downloadable activity book based around portraits.

You can download the full activity book (PDF) directly from the National Portrait Gallery website, or explore the twelve different rebels, believers and dreamers by looking at each person individually. The website also includes additional activities linked to the theme - aimed at under 5s, 6-8 years, 9-11 years or 12+ years.

Some of the brilliant people featured include:

  • Malala Yousafzai
  • Zaha Hadid
  • Harold Moody
  • Noor Khan
  • The Bronte Sisters
  • Ben Whishaw
  • Nick Park
