YOUNG artists flocked to a Sunderland museum to make creations inspired by one of its paintings.

Children enjoyed making fluffy sheep like the ones in the painting Snow on Tunstall Hills.

A free event, held at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens, saw families brought together through art.

Jennie Lambert, learning officer for the museum, said: “This was a great opportunity for children of all ages to get creative.

“Snow on Tunstall Hills is a particular favourite and well known painting, which introduces the artwork to the next generation.”

Kids were given the chance to explore their artistic side as they made their own rag rug sheep from hessian and scraps.
