Dulwich Picture Gallery Art Clubs

Putting this out there because I am not sure most families know that the fabulous Dulwich Picture Gallery runs popular art clubs through the winter for kids aged 7 to 18. The gallery is on Gallery Road, London SE21 7AD and transport links are brilliant. Free parking is available on Gallery Road.

The clubs still open to joiners (as at 26 October 2015) are:
