The Great Big Art Exhibition

Get involved in .... The Great Big Art Exhibition!



First Site are making THE GREAT BIG ART EXHIBITION and everyone is invited to take part.


First Site are an arts organisation based in Colchester and they’ve launched a national campaign to get people to create artwork for their windows, front gardens, balconies. So that whilst our galleries are closed and we’re all stuck at home we can unleash our national flair and creativity!


We thought it would be nice to encourage a local campaign in Hall Green, to see how many of us we can get to take part.


How to take part:


All you have to do to take part is to create a piece of work based on the set theme.


Every 2 weeks a new theme will be announced, the theme is set by an artist, we will place a new PDF on Well Being Wednesday to let you know what the theme is and there will be a PDF with examples of work by the artist who has set the theme.


The starting theme is Animals.


You can create your artwork in whatever way you want

· Do a doodle and colour it in

· Draw a picture

· Do a painting

· Make a model out of lego

· Make a clay model or use plasticine or playdoh

· Create a collage

· Take a photo


You can choose to follow the prompts set by the artist or your can just do your own thing!!


When you have finished making your master piece:

· display it somewhere that it can be seen by your neighbours and passers by (if you want) · or share with school via the newsletter by emailing to

· or just share it with your family.


If you want to you can also share it with the First Site national project on any of these platforms:
