Calling all mini-masters! Add a little art to your day with this fun and easy to do at home activity for kids.
As part of the annual Wyndham Art Prize, kids are invited to draw a portrait of somebody special, take a photo of their drawing and submit their work via email, with the opportunity to win prizes and see their work on show as part of a digital gallery.
All you’ll need to participate is to set your little artist up with some paper, drawing materials, and a picture or – let them draw you from life!
Once they’ve created their masterpiece you can submit their work by sending us an email at [email protected] with their name, the title of their artwork, the best point of contact for you and an image of their work.
Submissions have been extended until 28 June, with prizes up for grabs including art supply gift vouchers! Submissions will also be also eligible for consideration to be included in a large, temporary public art piece – fun!
