Happy New year to you all!
Thank you for your ongoing support of Last Chance to Paint and we really hope you will continue to deliver our first two chapters from the Amazon and Borneo to your classes throughout 2020 and beyond. You can still send us questions from your children and we will happily answer them to make it ‘Live’ for them.
Please send us in all the children’s art you and we inspire for the WorldGallery.online and the 2020 Art Awards too. We will be announcing the 2019 Art Award winners very soon…
We thought it would be interesting to list what we achieved in 2019 with a few facts and figures.
The year in numbers (N.B. We started 2019 at 0 in all categories and the project is aimed at schools, so one follower could represent many children as an audience)
16,000 potential children (based on two classes from each school)
COUNTRIES & EXPEDITIONS
22 Countries represented by those schools
Three countries travelled to whilst delivering chapters 1 and 2 of the project

SPONSORS & SUPPORTERS
We have great plans for 2020 and want to increase our communications with schools so that more children’s art is sent into us and exhibited. There is an urgent need to connect the young generation positively to the issues we all face.
The gallery of children’s art we are building reminds us, and the children who exhibit, to tread gently on our planet and what we all stand to lose. We see art as a key way to build personal and lifelong bonds between children and the natural world.
We look forward to working with you all again in 2020 and can’t wait to get you all painting again soon.
Thank you for all your support.
