Global Canvas Children’s Art Competition 2019

Details: The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation set up the annual Global Canvas Children’s Art Competition in 2004 to encourage young people to express their concern for wildlife and the environment through art. The competition organisers are looking for imaginative group entries from children under 16 using creative media – art, sculpture, textiles, collage, present as a mini exhibition reflecting the theme of the competition. The theme for 2019 is ‘Habitats of the World’. Entry to the competition is free. Winners will be announced at an exhibition and ceremony at London’s Natural History Museum next year.

About The Artist

Welcome to the October issue in which many of our top-class artists celebrate painting in a variety of locations in all kinds of weather, from Pete the Street Brown in Havana, to Geoff Hunt who shows how not to let an unpromising day spoil your painting. Our artist-tutors also offer help and advice on colour mixing in oils, how to improve your compositional awareness, use gouache to paint atmospheric landscapes, create luminosity in your paintings by combining cold wax and water-soluble oils, and develop your skills by working in monochrome. Paul Talbot-Greaves suggests a simple exercise to help you loosen up, Julie Collins shows how to mix the right greens for your watercolour paintings, while Glyn Macey invites you to learn from the painting style of Lamorna Birch by following this month's demonstration. Plus, be inspired as we introduce many of this year's The Artist Open Competition amazingly talented prizewinners!
