A few more days to get your Children's Art Week entries in

If you haven't submitted your Children's Art Week entry yet you have one more week to do so.   The deadline for pictures is Friday July 10th.  We've had a lot of great pictures from visitors to the Museum but it would be great to get some from our fans from further afield!

A reminder on the conditions for entry can be found below:
Children's Art Week 2015
Museum of Witchcraft and Magic Drawing Competition
This year's theme: Witches in fiction, fantasy and folklore

The Competition is open to all young people aged between 3 and 18.

In the Museum, you will see lots of images of witches from plays like Macbeth or poems like Tam O'Shanter.  There are images of witches from fairy stories and folklore too like the witch in Snow Whitee, Baba Yaga or witches riding in eggshells.  There are lots of witches in stories and films too like in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Terry Pratchett's Discworld and the Wizard of Oz.

Have a look around our displays and think about amazing, weird and wonderful witches.  Can you draw one for us?  You can copy an existing image or you can imagine what this witch looked like for yourself.  The best entrants will probably use colour and possibly paint and other media to create a quality piece of work.

There will be prizes for the best work and the opportunity to have the work displayed in the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic and exhibited as part of an online exhibition.

Make sure you put your name and contact details on the back of your picture and also tell us what witch you have drawn.
