Get creative – Art 4 Cheetahs Workshop – Saturday 19th June at 2pm BST
CCF UK is partnering with Art Safari, and the amazing wildlife artist Mary-Anne Bartlett, to deliver a 3-hour workshop dedicated to studying and drawing cheetahs. Mary-Anne will guide you through exercises to develop your wildlife sketching and watercolour technique as we draw from beautiful photos and video footage. Tickets are £35 and can be purchased on the Art Safari website, where you can also find out more information.
Competition time – #300cheetahs
As part of Art 4 Cheetahs we’re challenging our supporters to create 300 pieces of cheetah artwork to create a visual storm across social media
and highlight the plight of the 300 cubs a year that are snatched from the wild and sold illegally as pets. For your chance to win a copy of the stunning Remembering Cheetahs book
Simply upload your picture to any social media platform and tag us @ccfcheetahuk adding #300Cheetahs and #EndCheetahTrafficking. Or email us your picture
. See our online gallery here.
All ages and abilities welcome!
Mary-Anne Bartlett is a travel and wildlife artist and founder of the incredible Art Safari. Sketching is what it’s all about for Mary-Anne, not exhibitions and shows. She developed a habit of carrying watercolours and a travel sketchbook while at Art College at Exeter and Strasbourg (CIM Dip M, DNSEP Strasbourg, BA Comb Hons Exeter) and sees these tools as the artist’s passport to integration into communities around the world.
Mary-Anne is a cultural chameleon and happy in many countries, cultures and languages. She is especially well-known as an African specialist. As great-great-granddaughter of explorer botanist and doctor Sir John Kirk, Mary-Anne has travel, and Africa, in the blood.
We are so grateful to Mary-Anne and her team for kindly gifting their time and expertise to host this free event.
