Children's Art Week - Connecting Across Generations

6th July 2020 to 12th July 2020

Event Overview

In 2020, Children’s Art Week will take place online, at home and in schools across three weeks in June and July.

We've got oodles of ideas and lesson plans to help you on your way! 

Each week will focus on a special theme. Our 2020 themes are…

  • Week 1 (from 29 June): The Natural World
  • Week 2 (from 6 July): Connecting across generations
  • Week 3 (from 13 July): Literacy and creative writing

Schools, galleries, museums and community groups are invited to plan and register visual arts activities for children and families. These activities will give children and young people, together with their teachers, parents and carers, the opportunity to take part in practical art activities with artists, makers and educators.

Over the past months, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how essential creativity and the visual arts are for learning, connecting and wellbeing. While our venues, cultural organisations and some school buildings may be closed, engaging in the visual arts is more important than ever.

Register your Children's Art Week activity by 25th June to be officially part of the action!
