Celebrating Children's Art Week 2019!

Creation Station | Activities for Kids | Arts and Crafts Activities For Kids | Education | Parenting | Rainy Day Activities For Kids

From 8 - 16 June a fantastic event will be taking place across the UK encouraging families, children and young people to discover fun, creative activities in their local area.

Children's Art Week is a programme run by Engage; the National Association for Gallery Education which provides schools, galleries, museum and community groups the opportunity to reach out to children and young people, along with their teachers, parents and carers and offer creative workshops for them to join in and enjoy.  

"I had a lot of trouble with reading and writing at school, but found art as a great way to be understood and express myself. Children’s Art Week is about releasing the creative child in all of us. There are so many great venues (big and small) involved in creating a platform for this brilliant event. Together we can help empower kids with art and help them get their ninja on!"

Ricky Martin, CBBC’s Art Ninja, Creative Director at Aardman Animations, animator, actor and artist 

During the week a wide range of practical, visual art activities will be taking place in locations such as libraries, community halls, country parks, heritage venues, museums and individual artists/makers workshops.

Virtual party

I wasn’t sure how to celebrate my daughter’s birthday with the current restrictions and I don’t regret doing a virtual arty party at all! Nicola was absolutely amazing at hosting my daughter’s virtual 6th birthday party and all the girls really enjoyed it! Nicola was really good at keeping in contact and explaining how it would work. Would definitely recommend and will look at doing another party again in the future.

Family fun!

Lovely relaxed session for the whole family, Alix very friendly. Crafting not an easy thing to do via zoom, but it worked well. Children especially excited at the prospect of being in the Guinness book of records?

Sparking my inner arts and crafts hobbyist

Absolutely love these classes. I was first introduced to these from another baby group leader, I wanted to take my little boy to some different groups. When we were allowed to go, we went to the baby groups in Westhoughton. It was a very warm welcome that made us feel so comfortable in a new group. Everything was explained fully on what we had to do in the groups, even providing protective clothing for the clothes for my little boy. After this, I have gotten to know the group leader a little and now started to join in monthly arts and crafts zoom meetings with other ladies who enjoy this. I never thought I would start a hobby doing this but I LOVE IT! I’ve now made 2 things and am waiting for the March class to make more. It’s something to take my mind away for a few hours and do some creating. I was always so interested in arts and crafts when I was young but now this has got my mind buzzing. Thank you for your groups and lovely leaders! It’s been brilliant doing these groups in lockdown!

A brilliant arty party for 6 year olds

We held a joint online arty party for my 6 year old daughter and her friend today and it was brilliant. Nicola Gillaspy was really helpful in organising the event and sent out everything we needed ahead of time, and was an absolutely brilliant party host. All the girls were engaged and made some lovely crafts, and it was lovely to see them all laughing and having fun together, in spite of the lockdown. Thanks Nicola - highly recommend her parties ☺️

Brilliant

I cannot praise the creation station enough. It has been a wonderful experience taking part in the zoom calls and it has been a god send to my sister, who has learning difficulties. I wish I had found you sooner

My kids love The Creation Station classes. They are always well run and really engaging. This session was on zoom and the joining info was really helpful and meant the session ran really smoothly. Would definitely recommend.
