This week sees the start of Children's Art Day, an event that, depsite its name lasts from today until the weekend. The CAD consists of a number of events throughout the whole of Britain, intended to get children more involved with art. Programmes are available to both individual families and via schools.
From special exhibitions to classes and workshops, children can have the chance to learn about all sorts of things from making an army and building a castle from cardboard boxes in west London to creating a crazy collage in Rochdale or making art from recyling rubbish in Birmingham. There are exhibitions everywhere from the Tate to the Baltic - definitely something for every child and in every area of the country.
