Somerset artists needed for children’s project

Serious boy

Somerset County Council is seeking artists to take part in two events to encourage children and teenagers who are being supported by foster carers to get creative.

Artists would be showing children different art techniques, and helping them create their own artworks. This is a brilliant opportunity to help give a positive experience to children and young people who are having a tough time. We are looking for artists with different art skills and styles, and who would be happy to help at the events on a volunteer basis.

If you’re interested and want to find out more, please email dblacklock@somerset.gov.uk by Friday 15 January 2016, with details of the kind of art you specialise in or create, and whether you have worked with, or currently work with, children and young people.
