Turtle Key Arts have confirmed that it will be bringing back their Musical Portraits project in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery from the 24th until the 27th July.
Held each year since 2010, Turtle Key Arts have produced and devised Musical Portraits to encourage young people to use the portraits at the National Portrait Gallery as a stimulus to create their own music by an artist from the gallery.
The project is aimed at children aged between 10-14 years old who have autism spectrum conditions.
Taking place across the week, the free project encourages the participants to to engage with their existing artistic and musical interests, providing access to renowned paintings and high quality music making with professional musicians.
Musical Portraits also provides an opportunity to make social connections with other young people with similar interests and to help the young people to gain skills in creativity, concentration and focus, social imagination and communication.
At the end of the week, there will be a live performance for friends and family of all the participants.
