The London International Gallery of Children's Art (LIGCA) is devoted to encouraging the creativity of children and to promoting international understanding through cultural exchange. Our hope is to open the eyes of visitors to the integrity and power of children's art.

Art materials are always available to create your own work of art in response the exhibition.

The London International Gallery of Children's Art (LIGCA) was founded in 1993 at Southbank International School in Hampstead. In 1999 we moved to our present space, donated by the O2 Centre. Glenda Jackson, MP for Hampstead and Highgate, officially opened our new gallery.

The LIGCA hosts exhibitions of children's art from every corner of the world including artwork by local children. We run a schools education programme relating to these exhibitions, including exhibition tours, workshops in the gallery and outreach work. Out of school hours, we offer an exciting range of art workshops and courses catering for 2-12 year olds.
