Join artist Anahita Alavi to explore how to tell a story with paintings.

Work as a family and get inspired by Persian tales, Anahita's work and images from the V&A Collection to develop your story.

Experiment with collage and drawing, then use colours and gold paint to create your illustration, adding scenes and decorations inspired by nature, architecture and patterns.
