family fun at the drop in to colour at Turner Contemporary margate

Despite the cool summer day it was a hothouse of colour activity at the Turner Contemporary Margate ‘Drop in to Colour’ on Saturday, part of the  #Summer of Colour programme of events.

Hosted by the Colour Group GB, families enjoyed hours of colourful activities from painting mini masterpieces, playing the colour name card game, making coloured fans, playing with giant jigsaw colour globes, testing their colour vision and creating a large ‘feathered’ dove from their own colourful hands.
