TRH to visit Dulwich Picture Gallery to see Children & the Arts’ work

Children taking part in Great Art Quest at Dulwich Picture Gallery

We are delighted to announce that Their Royal Highness’s The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are to introduce The Duchess of Cambridge to the work of The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts at Dulwich Picture Gallery.

Their Royal Highnesses will meet school children participating in Great Art Quest, a project run by Children & the Arts, at Dulwich Picture Gallery on Thursday 15th March.  The Duchess of Cambridge has a personal interest in the arts and supporting young children, and The Prince of Wales is taking this opportunity to show the successful educational work His Foundation for Children & the Arts has been doing in London.

Great Art Quest introduces children from deprived areas of the UK to the visual arts by partnering schools with local galleries, professional artists and storytellers, and providing them with the skills and confidence to create their own work.  This is the fourth year Children & the Arts has run Great Art Quest, which is kindly sponsored by GAM (UK) Ltd.  Almost 500 children are taking part in Great Art Quest this year, 120 of these at Dulwich Picture Gallery.

As part of Great Art Quest, the children at Dulwich Picture Gallery have been creating self portraits which will form part of our collaborative art project, Face Britain.  These artworks will join thousands more self portraits by 4-16 year olds in the special Face Britain online gallery, and will ultimately be projected onto the front of Buckingham Palace.

Children & the Arts needs to raise over £1m each year.  Please visit our Support Us webpage to find out how you can help to transform the lives of children across the UK.
