The North Laine’s wonderful Hidden Gallery is encouraging children to be inspired and, in turn, to inspire them, with their lockdown Kids Art Competition. Launched at the beginning of April, the contest is running until the end of May and is open from anyone aged 0-17.

What’s more you could win a £150 Amazon gift card and a winner from each age group will win an amazing L’émouchet set of dual-tipped art marker pens.

Hidden Gallery

Whether you’re a proficient Pablo Picasso, a creative Keith Haring, a practised Patrick Caulfield, a wonderful Warhol, or a brilliant Banksy, Chris and the gang at Hidden want you to be inspired by these and other phenomenal artists. Have a look at the works of art on their website, select one that you love, and either adapt it or create something of your own inspired by it. Painting, drawing, sculpture, anything goes, so get your thinking caps on, and your creative juices flowing.

They have loads of fantastic entries already, from children of all ages, and inspired by a range of artists. You can see them all, and get all the details you needs at by visiting their competition page here.

Good luck!!
