Daily Word Art Challenge 2021 

We have set up this brilliant community Daily Word Art challenge to keep everyone going through the lockdown.  Doing anything creative is very therapeutic and beneficial to your mental well-being.

We have advertised this project through social media and emailed our Elderberries/volunteer/members to take part in this.

    Instructions

The idea is to draw the chosen daily word using a variety of techniques and then for participants to send in their artwork to marketing@caerphillyminerscentre.org.uk

Here are the words we'll be asking participants to draw over the next few weeks.  Please feel free to try out different techniques and use watercolour or acrylic paints.  You might need to google some of the techniques suggested below to give you an idea of how to do it.
