Have you got a young artist in your family?

Natasha's Wood is a magical world of picture books for young children.

This document gives an Overview of what your young artist needs to do - a two-step process.

Here we have further information about the author, Fay Maddison and the story of how the first book came about - a story in itself!  The last page provides the inspiration for your child to start drawing!

This is the Submission Form, giving permission to publish artwork, which should accompany the child's artwork.

Please send the form and artwork to the Friends of the National Arboretum address (as detailed on the form).

This is a great activity for a hot summer's day, or a rainy day, so please encourage your child to read the inspiring story and make a drawing or two.  They might even see their artwork in print!
