Studio HaHaHals. Step into the Golden Age and Make a Funny Group Portrait!

Did you know that it’s OK to laugh at old paintings? They’re not always deadly serious. Some artists hid jokes in their paintings, others painted jolly people. Frans Hals was very good at it, so he’s sometimes called the master of the laugh. Put yourself in the shoes of a seventeenth-century person and make a funny group portrait in our photo studio. Can you make the funniest picture?
