Why get involved?

  • Children's Art Week is a fantastic opportunity to encourage families, children and young people to visit local venues and enjoy fun creative activities that they might not have tried before.
  • In 2017 more than 16,200 children, young people and adults took part in events across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
  • Event organisers reported that 60% of participants attending their activity were first time visitors to their venue, and 30% of participants were audiences who were completely new to the arts.
  • But don't just take it from us – hear what our wonderful ambassadors have to say about Children's Art Week!

Is there any support available?

  • The first 40 venues / individual artists or makers to register events will receive £50 seed funding to support their event.
  • All registered events will receive resources to help plan and promote their activities, publicity support from a freelance PR Consultant appointed by Engage plus free Children's Art Week stickers to hand out on the day.
