How Does Your Garden Grow? – Sandwell Arts Trail 2020
10 June to 31 August
Its back, but slightly different! We are happy to announce the Sandwell Arts Trail is back with a new theme. “How Does Your Garden Grow?”
We are asking the people of Sandwell to get out in to their gardens, armed with their paints, pencils, brushes and create wonderful artistic impressions of your own private, tranquil, calm place.
Take a photograph of one of your favourite plants in your garden and share it with us. Sketch your favourite tree, share with us your gardens at the beginning of lock down and how they look now.
every entry will be added to a Sandwell Museum and Arts service flickr album, and we will be taking entries till the end of August.
Once you have finished your masterpiece, send a photo along with your name and location to firstname.lastname@example.org. we will create a virtual exhibition on Flickr to exhibit the work, and give audiences the chance to vote for their favourite piece.
The trail is open to everyone, and we have 2 categories Over 16s and Under 16s so the whole family can be involved.
if you are unable to access a garden, how about on your daily walk, take a photo of a local green space, use google maps and images, paint your favourite house plant or window box.
Endless chances for you to create a wonderful piece of work to share with the people of Sandwell
