I’m not sure about you but my kitchen is covered in artwork! Whether painted at school, or drawn at home, pictures multiply daily!

According to research on behalf of BIC, “three quarters of parents have kept the first arts and crafts item their child ever created for them and 70 per cent are keeping a box of their children’s arts and crafts items to give to them when they are older.” So if you’re a hoarder of your children’s art you are not alone!

If you have a budding artist aged between 5 and 11, why not encourage them to enter the BIC Young Artist award 2019! But hurry as entries close 4th August!

To enter, grab your child an A4 piece of paper – in landscape! Get them to draw using pencils, crayons and felt tip pens. Encourage your child to use plenty of colour and make sure that they show off their skill! Once they’re done you need to enter via www.BICKIDS.co.uk/YoungArtist – (You can learn about the great prizes there too!).

Just imagine, if your child won you may even get to see their work of art up on a billboard!
