Capturing change: Sheffield in pictures
The Picturing Sheffield exhibition at the Weston Park Museum art gallery shows how our city has reinvented itself over the centuries. It showcases everything from 19th-century oil paintings to 21st-century street art to remind us that change is pretty much constant.
With all the paintings put in the same place, you can’t help but think about the changes we’re living through right now.
Paint your own history
Take a look at the exhibition on this online gallery then paint the same place as it is now. You could do this by using Google Maps Street View or searching for the place online. Share your artwork using #picturingsheffield
Why not document the changing landscape where you live by painting the view from your window.
Make it new
You can see images of contemporary street artist Jo Peel's brilliant work here. If you are inspired by her work, why not try a stylised line drawing using a drawing pen? Or use a digital device to create your picture – search the App store for the Brushes painting app to get started.
