Here’s a worthwhile family event that has not a thing to do with Christmas: On Sunday the Norton Simon is offering a free family-hour activity as part of its Stories in the Afternoon series. Called Look at Me, the program is tied to the new show of portraiture anchored by Jean-August-Dominique Ingres’s Comtesse d’Haussonville. Young artists will set up shop near the famed masterpiece, get to look through books of other portraits, and create their own framed portrait of whomever they like — even a self portrait. The docent-taught class is free, but you must pay the standard museum admission — which, in the case of kids under 18, is free!

Stories in the Afternoon: Look at Me
Sunday, December 27, 2 -3 p.m.
