A ‘generation’ is all of the people born at about the same time. For example, you and your friends from school as well as your brothers and sisters are from the same generation as you have similar ages. Your parents and carers are from a different generation and so are your grandparents.

This week’s art project will be creating portraits of friends and family. This way, we will connect different generations together.
