For families

Children’s Art Week (29 June – 19 July 2020) is back for 2020

Get creative with online and remote activities from across the UK!

Celebrate at home

We’ve invited venues and organisations across the UK to plan fun, arty and creative activities that children and young people can take part in at home and in schools. Each week of Children’s Art Week 2020 will focus on a special theme: 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.

There are events, activities and workshops for children of all ages to encourage everyone to #GetKidsCreating. All events and activities are free to take part in and use simple materials that can be found around the house.

Details of all Children’s Art Week events will be added to the website right up until June, so keep checking back in as events are added!

Arts Award

Are you looking for fun ideas to keep your children engaged and learning creatively? Arts Award’s Discover at Home is an easy-to-use framework to celebrate your children’s arts learning, giving them the opportunity to be celebrated for the work they make as part of Children’s Arts Week. They can even gain a certificate.

Share your creations!  

Join in and share your creations using the hashtags #GetKidsCreating and #ChildrensArtWeek. We’ll be keeping an eye out for your creations and would love to share the results.  

Wonderful — encouraging — the children LOVED it!
