Its Children’s Art Day next week. A record 225 events happening around the UK but very little in Liverpool sadly. The Wirral seem to be more enthusiastic.
Every day is Art Day!
Children’s Art Day has created a new focus for celebrating achievement in the visual arts.”
Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate Gallery
Children’s Art Day was set up as part of the Artworks programme run by the Clore Duffield Foundation. It is the national programme encouraging children, young people, families and teachers to engage with visual art. Children’s Art Day takes place during Shine week – a national schools festival celebrating talent in all young people. On Thursday 9 July 2009 the spotlight will be on the Visual Arts. Children’s Art Day in 2009, managed by engage, the National Association for Gallery Education, is supported by the Clore Duffield Foundation, the Mayor of London, and Kids Love London – part of Visit London.
