Sunday is art day! Join us every week to take part in our drop-in family workshops. This season we will be taking inspiration from Edward Bawden, and each week there'll be something special for you to make and take home, including beautiful flowers and fantastic beasts.
Suggested age: 4-12yrs
Suggested timing: These sessions are drop-ins and you are welcome to arrive at any time between 2 and 4pm. We would recommend arriving at 3pm after the initial rush if you would like a quieter experience.
Please be advised that these are family workshops, and designed for everyone to enjoy! Children should always be accompanied by at least one adult for the entirety of the session.

Dulwich Picture Gallery’s family programme is proud to support the charity Doorstep Library and invites you to bring book donations to our Art Sunday sessions. At each session, there will be a box outside of the Sackler Centre where you can place your donations. These will be passed on to Doorstep Library and much appreciated by families across Lambeth! Find out more about the amazing work they do here.
I have been really enjoying my family Art Sundays @dulwichgallery Last week we made ink wash postcards about our imaginary life in the woods. Every drawing looked as gorgeous as the next, but my hands-down favourite is by my niece, and helper for the day, Alice (hope you don’t mind me posting this, Ali? xxx) #inkdrawing #inkpostcard #imaginarylandscape #creativity #artforall #dulwichpicturegallery #artsunday #proudauntie
