Kingsbridge Town Council launches lockdown art project

Kingsbridge Town Council are hoping to create a distraction from the crazy times we are all living through by launching a lockdown art project. 

Kingsbridge Town Council - lockdown art project

The idea is to show how you are "coping and feeling" during lockdown and using art to do it. A spokesperson for the town council said: "Creativity helps with stress and relaxing and helps us express our ideas and visions but also concerns and fears. This lockdown we are ALL focusing on staying safe from Covid and keeping the people we love safe."

The town council would like to use your art work in "forthcoming projects throughout the town", of which there are some plans being drawn up as we speak, meaning your art could appear "on street banners on in flower beds!"

The spokesperson explained: "We would love you to create something! Anything that reflects your mood, experience, hopes, concerns and your life. Show us, through art what your life looks like now, in this Lockdown.

"We will collate the art and by submitting a piece, you give permission for your art to be used in a forthcoming project. We want everyone to feel included. There are NO restrictions on age or ability. You may be five or 80. You may do art for fun or professionally. You may want to draw, paint, produce something digital or in a unique way we haven't thought of.

"Take your time. There is no rush. This is your project. There is no deadline. Enjoy the process.

"We are really excited to see your art and hope this collaborative project gives you a distraction, relaxation and a feeling of community."
