Hackney Street Art Trail - COMPETITION now on!

Hackney is a treasure trove of #streetart masterpieces. From Shoreditch to Hackney Wick, London Fields to Clapton, the borough is awash with #artskicking gems.

My kiddos love this one by French artist Zabou off Broadway Market

For the next 3 weeks, I'm offering you the chance to win your very own StreetArt Beginners Kit. It's got everything you need to beautifully graffiti an imaginary city, while sitting at your table! Includes 20 city wall images to decorate, 2 differently style lettering sheets, 4 felt pens, and instructions.

All you have to do is this...
  1. Take the kids* on a #streetart treasure hunt
  2. Find and photograph your favourite #streetart
  3. Pop your best pics on social media (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest) using the #KickUpTheArts hashtag  
*your own, or someone else's - their parents will love you for it!

Closing date: March 17 (St. Patrick's Day)

May the best pic win!

You'll find plenty of inspiration HERE to get you started. In the meantime, I'll leave you to ponder this quote by the mysterious mister Banksy...

Now get your coats on and go kick some #arts ;)
