Children’s Art Week is an annual UK-wide programme run by Engage, the lead advocacy and training network for gallery education, representing arts educators, organisations, freelancers and artists from across the UK and over 20 countries worldwide.
Each year Children’s Art week is held to encourage and celebrate children’s involvement in visual arts. Due to the pandemic, this year has been a little different and Art Week is not running as usual. So we are celebrating the week unofficially instead!
Art from Norwich
This Children’s Art Week we’re sharing some art from students at our Norwich Centre.
Recently students have been studying and trying their hand at various kinds of art including abstract and surrealism. They’re been exploring through different mediums and different subjects.
In our gallery below you can see two digital abstract self-portraits, as well as an oil pastel surrealist piece inspired by Magritte, all created by Year 9 students at the Centre. Click on the images to see the full picture.
