VJ Day Illustration Workshops

Monday 22 June (10am or 6pm), Tuesday 23 June (10am) & Saturday 27 June (10am)

Explore the end of the Second World War and learn how to illustrate histories with artist Kremena Dimitrova.

To mark 75 years since VJ Day and the end of the Second World War, Kremena Dimitrova will be producing a brand-new series of illustrations which will be exhibited on the Arboretum’s website in August and September. The exhibition will explore stories of the diverse communities who served alongside each other in the war, and the lasting legacy that they have had on today’s society and culture.

Take part in a digital workshop to discover more about the end of the war and be guided through illustration by Kremena. Your work may inspire the illustrations being produced for the exhibition.

The workshops will be delivered over Zoom, so that you can take part in the comfort of your own home.


Spaces are limited and pre-registration is essential.


These workshops are recommended for Children in Key Stage 4 and 5, and all participants under 18 must have permission from a parent or guardian to take part.
