Children's Art Week 2017

Children’s Art Week is back for 2017, running from Saturday 10 until Sunday 18 June.


Children’s Art Week will see thousands of children, their teachers and their families descending on visual arts venues, schools, libraries and youth and community organisations across the UK, to be inspired, engaged and entertained by art.


Thank you to all of the wonderful venues across the country who have registered events*. We now have an incredible 110 events listed.


Events are being held in galleries, arts centres and museums, and at libraries, schools, heritage sites and community and youth centres, too. We also hope to encourage more schools than ever before to take part – we’re piloting a scheme in Leicester and Thanet, inspired by another of our successful projects, Generation ART, and we’d like schools to exhibit artwork that has been curated and promoted by students themselves. 


Join in on Twitter @engagevisualart, Instagram @engagevisualart, and our Facebook page using the hashtag #ChildrensArtWeek. You can also sign up for email updates straight to your inbox by following this link.


We are pleased to have the support of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts (NADFAS), The Finnis Scott Foundation and the Garfield Weston Foundation. engage receives support from Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Programme, project funding from the Arts Council of Wales and is an Annual Client of Creative Scotland.


*Should any venues wish to change any details of their event, they will now need to contact Communications Officer, Laura Callan at communications@engage.org, or by calling the Engage central office on 0207 729 5858
