Competition to encourage children’s creativity launched for Children’s Art Week!

29th June 2020

This week, thousands of children, their teachers and their families across the UK  will be celebrating Children’s Art Week. Taking part in fun, creative activities at home and in schools that will help children and young people to be inspired, engaged and entertained by art.

Children’s Art Week is a UK-wide programme run by Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education. 

Children’s Art Week is a growing campaign to encourage children’s creativity, It’s a fantastic opportunity to encourage families, children and young people to get involved in fun, creative activities. 

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

With lots of children at home, we want to do our bit to help entertain and spread some positivity amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

We have decided to run a ‘design your own school’ competition – a great way to keep children busy while putting their creative brains to work! 

The competition is open to all ages, to be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is use your imagination to create your own school.

You could even use recycled materials such as cereal boxes, milk cartons, plastic bottles, jars, lids, cans, newspaper and toilet paper rolls. 

There is no entry form, once the design is complete, please take a photo and email it to us at – info@nmcn.com or alternatively tag nmcn on social media.

There will be three winners chosen:
