Don’t Miss : Children’s Art Week : 16-22nd June 2014

There are some exciting events happening across town with some of our favourite illustrators, artists and workshop-leaders. We like the sound of the Hunt for Treasure with Okido at The Design Museum, and the Family Day at The Whitechapel, and the Family River Sketching Walk in Richmond. All the details can be found here, so get packing your dried fruit and energy bars, ready for a week of creativity, artist inspiration and plain old fun.
