Image for Rolf Paints... The Diamond JubileeNot currently available on BBC iPlayer

Duration: 1 hour

In celebration of the Queen's diamond jubilee, Rolf Harris joins Anneka Rice and a team of sixty inspirational artists as they try to capture sixty years of royal history on canvas.

Rolf will be throwing open the doors of his specially-constructed 'pop-up art school' to artists of all ages and abilities as, for one day only, they set up easel and pick up their brushes to pay tribute to our Queen. With Rolf as their mentor, the artists will be able to pick up tips and techniques from the man who has become one of Britain's favourite artists and entertainers.

Joining Rolf is amateur artist Anneka Rice. Anneka has been out and about collecting stories and meeting people with their own memories of the Queen's reign. Not only will she be painting, but she will also face a huge challenge; as soon as the artists put down their brushes, she will need to work through the night to transform the venue into a free pop-up art gallery ready for the public to view the paintings.
