Young Londoners can learn how to produce images without the use of hands on Thursday 24th October from 11am at KidZania London.
Kids are invited to get creative with a very special art workshop from the MFPA (Mouth and Foot Painting Artists), the global partnership of artists who draw and paint without the use of their hands.
The activity is to mark the launch of a unique new children’s book. Danny’s Dream is about a young boy who, after suffering a tragic accident, believes his dream of achieving an Olympic Gold medal is over. That is until he discovers something magical that will change his life forever.
Inspired by the remarkable achievements of the recent Paralympians, Danny’s Dream is the perfect bedtime read for children 3-8 years old to discover that dreams come true, although sometimes in the most unexpected ways.
Children attending the sessions will get the chance to work on an illustration chosen from the 35 illustrated paintings by Ian Parker in Danny’s Dream, created using a pencil and paint brush with his mouth.
The book is available for £10, and for one day only, will come with a Free MFPA paint set when purchased from the KidZania shop.
This is the first time a disabled artist has been involved in creating a children’s book that features a disabled child as the central character.
