Let`s go to Liverpool!
This week we`re off to Liverpool where we will visit the Walker Art Gallery which has many beautiful paintings, sculptures and decorative arts from the 13th Century to the present day. We then go to the Tate, Liverpool where we are given a guided tour by Peter Blake of his retrospective exhibition in 2007. No visit to Liverpool would be complete without a reference to the Beatles so there is an art demonstration in acrylics of a painting of the fab four.
