Art competition provides exciting half-term project
Artist Debbie Baxter, of Hub Co-Create Cambridge, and Dumbletons Studios are working together to promote an art competition for six to 15-year-olds to celebrate the Year of the Tree 2020.
The task is to paint a tree, or trees, in any medium in any situation from life or imaginary and in any size – but not photography.
Frances Dumbleton and Debbie will judge the best entries and these will then be showcased in the Cambridge Independent. Readers will then choose a winner and two runners-up.
The top 30 will be displayed in the gallery at Hub Co-Create in Milton Road for public viewing over Christmas with the three winners in pride of place in the window.
The winner and two runners-up will receive:
- First place: a two-hour art class with Debbie and 50 greetings cards with envelopes made of their winning picture
- Second place: a two-hour art class with Debbie and 12 long-handled acrylic paint brushes
- Third place: a two-hour art class with Debbie.
All entries must be submitted from today (October 22) and November 12 and the winning entries will be announced the following week.
Email all entries to Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
