August's Art Prompts
1. Try a fun painting experiment. If you haven’t tried one of my project videos then now is your chance. Last week saw the release of a fun project using watercolour to paint a Birds nest. It’s a bit experimental and requires a straw! So give it a go and send me your results. The first video for August looks a creating fun hanging ‘Hot air balloons’ from old light bulbs! If you can please like the videos and subscribe to my YouTube channel, it all helps me get some street cred! 2. Visit a Museum/Gallery Yes a real life, out in the world museum! I know I can’t believe how crazy that sounds!

Sotheby’s have started their Summer Talks online. This year is 500 years of Art: Sumer talks, and begins with artist Yinka Shonibare CBE and Tim Marlow OBE, Director of the Design Museum in London. As they discuss how art and art history influences different genres and periods in art. The video can be found here: https://www.sothebys.com/en/series/500-years-of-art-summer-talks
