Paint for Victory – An Invitation to Create

Paint for Victory over Coronavirus

Graham Lilley extends an invitation to the communities of Brabourne & Smeeth including our school children.

As we all come to terms with this virus, in many cases being isolated from our usual contacts, family and friends, he is suggesting that we all try & take a little time out to produce a piece of ARTWORK of any size,style or subject – just one painting per person to start with.

If you have watercolour paints that would be great but ANY MEDIUM will do …felt tip pens, coloured pencils, pastels, acrylics or even pencil drawings.

His Idea is to hold a FAMILY EXHIBITION of ALL the paintings submitted at the end of this very difficult time, at a local venue (yet to be decided) with the aim of raising monies for a local charity which will have suffered from lack of income as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Hopefully this will help to focus people’s minds on something other than the virus and reduce some of the stress of not meeting up at the usual art groups in the village and elsewhere..

Graham is always happy to offer advice, tips and hints on your work .So please contact him if you need any help:

With all the spring flowers out now and potential paintings in your own locations he thinks this could be quite exciting.and he hopes many of you and possibly your friends will take part.
