Looking for something to keep the kids occupied this summer? You should visit our free Colour Splash exhibition - on display until September 20.

Housed at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery's Waterhall gallery, this family friendly summer exhibition of paintings, textiles and objects from around the world shows how artists and craftspeople respond to the possibilities of colour.

The show features highlights from Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery’s 20th Century art collections, including the acclaimed works of Allen Jones, Howard Hodgkin, Ian Davenport and Fiona Rae, and will also include the museum's first showing of contemporary Aboriginal artist, Malcolm Jagamarra and his Warlu Warna (2001).

This family friendly summer exhibition features an extensive resource area, books and learning resources, dressing up, children's trail, colouring in and art based activities with an area set aside for the display of children's art work inspired by the exhibition.

There is also a children's art competition with featured works to be displayed on the Museum website. flickr photostream.
