New ART BENCHES

New benches with an art theme will start to pop up in Sunderland soon.

You can get involved by helping to bring them to life.

Use it as an opportunity to participate in an activity with family, a group of friends or a community group.

There are two parts to this activity - 

Part 1 - Designing the front and back panels

Download the template and sketch out some imaginative images about Sunderland People and Sunderland Landscapes - Think about where you love to go, what you love to do and what is important to you about Sunderland.

You can email images and ideas to Kerry at artbenches2021@hotmail.com by the end of July.

Make sure you tell her about your idea and provide your name and contact details.

Part 2 - Painting the designs

Be part of this community project by rolling your sleeves up and grabbing a paintbrush. All you need to do is book your slot. But don't worry all the images will be pre-drawn on but everyone can have a go at making their mark!

Painting workshops can be booked for a bubble of four people at either 10 am, 11 am or 1 pm and free tickets can be booked via www.ticketsource.co.uk/theartroomsunderland

Dates of the workshops which will be held at The Bridges are;

Wenesday 11 August

Friday 13 August

Monday 16 August

Aprons will be provided but please do not wear your favourite clothes just to be safe!
