YOUR art in OUR windows!
Everyone can join in!
5 April  – 3 May

We invite you to take part in Firstsite gallery’s Great Big Art Exhibition, the biggest art exhibition in the UK!

All you have to do to take part is to draw or paint anything on these two themes, using A4 or A3 paper:

Flowers
Draw the Future

And we will fill our windows with artwork made by you!
Whether you are a doodler or a dabbler, a complete first-timer or an old hand, all ages and abilities are welcome to join in!

To take part, post your picture in the Big Art Box on the Pavilion terrace (the side by the sea) Mon – Fri, 10am – 5pm from 5 April.
Please add your name, postcode and email address on the back of your picture.
If you can’t get to the Pavilion, then post your work to us at Great Big Art Exhibition, De La Warr Pavilion, Marina, Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex TN40 1DP

If you need some help to get started, watch these two short videos below from local artist John Tyson and discover how easy it is to draw! John shows us how to draw a daffodil, but that’s only a suggestion. We encourage you to draw your favourite spring flower using some of his top tips below or get inspiration from the Blooming Marvellous : Look at Flowers in Art gallery here.

If you decide to go for Drawing the Future, then we look forward to seeing your imagination go wild, with no limits on what you can draw or paint!
