Art in Education

As part of Chester Arts Fair’s Education in Art programme, we have teamed up with local primary schools to showcase art work from some of their most talented students. 
The work will be judged by a panel of Art Experts, where the winners will receive prizes which will include the opportunity to display their work at next year’s Chester Arts Fair or Liverpool Contemporary Arts Fair. For more information visit our Art in Education area

Children’s Area 

Chester Arts Fair has a dedicated children’s area offering a multitude of activities to keep your children amused such as a children’s art trail, art competition, face painting as well as numerous Arts and Crafts activities throughout the weekend. Let your children create their own piece of Art whilst you leisurely browse the Art Work on display.
