Virtual Tour of the Vatican Museums, Rome
Soaring vaulted ceilings, intricate murals, and tapestries, the Vatican’s museums are creatively rich sites.
Don’t forget to look up when exploring the seven spaces in the museum’s virtual tour, to gawp at a series of 360-degree images, including the Sistine Chapel.
Wander around the rest of Vatican City with a You Visit tour that takes in Saint Peter’s Basilica and Square, complete with a tour guide narrating each interactive space.
Six Year Old Girl told by art teacher her painting was ‘wrong’, Twitter disagrees
Is there anything more disheartening than doing a piece of work you’re proud of only to have it snubbed? That’s what happened to a six-year-old girl following a session at an after-school art club, her mum said on Twitter.
In a plea to fellow users of the platform, the proud mother asked: “Can you please show Edie some support and like her painting?”

ArtLovers Quote Of The Week
“I paint because this is what I love to do.” – Leonid Afremov
Malika Favre is a French artist based in London. Her bold, minimal style – often described as Pop Art meets OpArt – is a striking lesson in the use of positive/negative space and colour.
Her unmistakable style has established her as one of the UK’s most sought-after graphic artists. Her work has been used by top magazines such as Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and Vogue.
Our Next Paint & Grape Event
Our ArtLovers tell us that Paint & Grape sessions are the highlights of their week.
Explore our next Paint & Grape evening on the 29th of May at Couqley JLT from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
