Rolf Harris Paints the Jubilee



The Old Vic Tunnels played host to a gallery of Jubilee art created by the contributors of the BBC special programme “Rolf Paints…The Diamond Jubilee”

Rolf Harris threw open the doors of the specially-constructed Pop Up Art School at the Old Vic Tunnels to artists of all ages and abilities, for one day only, they set up their easels and pay tribute to The Queen. With Rolf as their mentor, the artists were able to pick up tips and techniques from the man who has become one of Britain’s favourite artists and entertainers.
