The Children’s Summer Exhibition is back!

This year, the team is looking for children to create a picture on the theme of ‘happiness’.  As well as showcasing the brilliant range of young local artistic talent, this is an exciting opportunity for children who enjoy art to see their creations on display in a public gallery.

Rules of entry

  • Open to children aged 5 to 15 who live in the borough of Dartford
  • One picture per entry and must be their own work
  • The picture should be about ‘happiness’
  • The picture can be a painting or drawing
  • The picture can be either A4 (21.0cm x 29.7cm) or A3 (29.7cm x 42.0cm) in size

How to enter

  • Fill out the entry form and write the child’s full name on the back of the picture
