Art inspired by the night sky
From 12th February to 21st February 2021, the Northumberland Dark Skies Festival will be hosted by various Dark Skies enthusiasts from some of our most well-known experience providers based in Northumberland.
As part of the festival, we are running an art competition for children aged 5-12, with the theme The Darkest Skies in England. The winning entry will receive a mini stargazing kit to use at home, as well as the opportunity for their school to borrow our brand new Dark Skies loans box free of charge.
To help you start to think about what kind of art you might like to create, we have put together some examples of different craft ideas that you can try at home.
