FAMILIES made artistic prints of tiny life forms as seen through a microscope at the Oxford Museum of the History of Science.

The workshop in Broad Street on Saturday set up slides of creatures including flies and bees.

Children and adults then formed their own artistic monoprints from tracings and drawings of what they saw.

Artist Andrew McNeile Jones, 50, and his nine-year-old son Isaac, of North Hinksey, went down to merge art and science.

Mr McNeile Jones said: “It was a great way of doing something a bit different on a bank holiday weekend. Isaac loved it.

“I did too actually. I haven’t made monoprints in a long time so it was a great way to play around with it a bit.

“We have three children so we always keep an eye on the museum events like these, they are always fun.”
