Budding artists run around grounds of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Family Art Baskets

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern One)

Why not try something new this summer? Bring your little budding artists to a FAB art-filled, FREE day out at Modern One. Create FAB art using a Family Art Basket in our fabulous sculpture park.

Start at Modern One and then including the Outdoor Sculpture Park at both Modern One and Modern Two

National Galleries of Scotland’s Family Art Baskets are FREE to borrow every afternoon during the school holidays. In each basket you’ll find lots of creative, fun ideas and materials to help your family have fun making and exploring art together.

In your basket you will find…

  • Sculpture materials
  • Drawing materials
  • A viewfinder to help you focus and see nature in a new way
  • Activity ideas to spark your imagination and boost your whole families’ confidence in art making
  • A picnic blanket 

There’s lots to see inside too – visit the National Galleries of Scotland’s families page to plan your visit – and don’t worry if it’s not ‘picnic’ weather – we have a rainy-day art and snacks space inside! 

Booking recommended to guarantee a basket – there will be some available on the day but not guaranteed without booking.

Supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery and Postcode Culture Trust.
