About The Event
On Sunday 24th April at 7pm we will be leading an online Paint Party, painting our lovely Summer Sunflower in support of and raising funds for The British Red Cross’ Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
In return for a donation on our Just Giving Page, why not join us live from our facebook page for a leisurely placed evening of fun. Gather you art items together, grab a cuppa or a glass of wine and tune in at 7pm when Sophie will take you through our painting step by step.
No experience needed. Doesn’t matter if you have been creating art for years or haven’t picked up a paint brush since school. Everyone’s creations will be unique and different and we would encourage you to EXPRESS YOURSELF. There is no right or wrong.
You can either follow the instructions or ‘express yourself’ by putting your own personal touches on it as much as you feel comfortable to do so. If you so wish, you can change the colours (maybe to fit in with home décor or a favourite colour) or add extra details. At the end of the evening you should have a painting that you love.
Why not get family and friends together and all paint together.
We will be painting using acrylic paint on stretched canvas but you can use whatever you have at home. Watercolours, poster paints, pencils, felt tip pens or crayons will all work just as well. You can use a stretched canvas, canvas board, card, paper (not recommended for paint) or even the inside of the cereal box. If you don’t have any supplies I can highly recommend Poundland as they have a great range of paints, brushes and even stretched canvases. The Range is also well stocked or if you want to really go for it you will find everything you need at Hobbycraft.
