A new online project has just been launched with the view to it becoming the largest community art project ever created, whilst at the same time raising funds for those affected by the Coronvavirus. It’s designed to be a fund and interactive way for anyone to be able to engage across abilities, across borders and across generations.
Each participant will be sent a downloadable template from a larger image. Choose to print your canvas on paper or download it to your device. Colour the template’s design, to carefully match where it connects with your neighbouring canvases using the gallery to guide you. Add your own special image or message to the blank space in the middle. Once completed, each image is scanned and uploaded. It is placed in the correct position with the resultant image growing daily. As more and more people participate, the image will grow and grow to become the largest piece of artwork ever created in the history of mankind. It cannot fail to become famous and your team can claim a part of the phenomenon!
Enhance your experience of the Corona Canvas by having a lesson with Harry Venning on how to draw cartoons. Harry is Strip Cartoonist of the Year, has contributed cartoons on a weekly basis for the Guardian newspaper for over 25 years and has written 67 episodes of the Radio 4 comedy show, “Clare in the Community”. In his uniquely humorous and informative style, Harry will show you step by step, how to be effective in story telling using the power of the pen and robbed of the written word.
