Children’s Art Week with National Mining Museum Scotland

Start the Scottish Summer Holidays with Art! National Mining Museum Scotland is delighted to be taking part in Engage’s Children’s Art Week for the first time ever!

Many don’t associate “art” with coal mining but art can take many forms. Art can help us understand and appreciate the history of coal mining and what it meant to miners and their communities! Help us to create a brand new, digital, exhibition by exploring our collection, taking inspiration from the history on your doorstep and submitting your own artwork to our exhibition!

Each week has a different theme and we’ve posted suggested activities for you to choose from on our website below

We believe art and our collection should be accessible for everyone so there are no age restrictions, free to enter and every participant will receive their own Certificate as well as be entered into a prize draw!

This event is open to the public.
