24hr Art-A-Thon. Be Part of The Art

This weekend I’m going to spend 24hrs creating art and I want you to be part of it.

At 10.00 on Saturday I’ll start at my home studio by drawing on the 20m roll of paper I have been given by Wickes (thank you!) Then along with my trusty sidekick Claire Westwood, we’ll travel into Park Street, Bristol to start inviting lovely folks to join in and lend a hand (literally!) at 12.00 I will be at nomad drawing whilst having part 2 of my rabies jabs!! Be interesting to see how that works out!

Then we’ll be ‘Out and About in Bristol’ inviting you to be Part of The Art!

How? HOW!!

Come and find us (timetable below) make a donation and then draw around your own hand on the paper, decorate it however you choose and you’re ‘Part of The Art.’

We are aiming to fill the whole 20m roll in 24hrs!

At the end of the 24hrs there will be an opportunity to bid on and buy parts of the totally unique artwork! There could be some famous hands on there too!! oooooo-eeee!

This is a Fundraising Event! 

We are raising funds for Children’s Hospice Southwest and Art Relief International who I am volunteering with for 4 weeks in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I’ll be developing and running art workshops with socially excluded groups. All donations from this 24hr event will be split 50/50 between the two charities.

Any artwork not sold will be split and half will go to the Children’s Hospice and I’ll take the other half with me to Art Relief International to use in an art workshop while I am there.

Keep checking back for more details!!
