Activity Sheets Inspired by Michelle Williams Gamaker

Explore film characters and create your own film set

Get creative with our selection of activity sheets inspired by Michelle Williams Gamaker's exhibition Our Mountains are Painted on Glass.

Michelle Williams Gamaker makes film installations in response to films she watched during her childhood. Her film Thieves features characters that first appeared in the 1924 film The Thief of Bagdad. Add your creativity to the main characters from Thieves with our Main Character activity sheets and share your favourite film character and why you like them. You can also create your very own film set, featuring actors, sets and the film crew.

These activity sheets can be found in our Create Space while the exhibition is running or you can download them below and try them at home. If you do give them a go, we'd love to see the results!
