What to expect during a webinar

Our webinars are an introduction to Last Chance to Paint. We use art to engage children with the environment. Our webinars offer an interactive Q&A and allow children to meet & paint with John Dyer. The webinars are not a 'paint by numbers' approach or a detailed instruction in painting techniques. We try to spark an individual creative response to the world by connecting children to the environment using art and to show how dynamic painting can be. After a webinar we encourage teachers to continue by exploring the full expedition chapter as a class project, so each child can create a final piece of art that is unique to them. So if you follow our Amazon rainforest expedition a child might want to do a final painting based on spiritual butterflies, the tribe, snakes, trees etc. Each child's painting should be about what has inspired that individual. Please take the time to submit the final pieces of art to our World Gallery so that each child's art bears witness to what we all risk losing.

Paint Bats and learn about the Borneo Rainforest. Live from the Eden Project's rainforest

A replay of the first live painting event with artist John Dyer from the rainforest biome at the world famous Eden Project. This video is aimed at school children and links into the full Last Chance to Paint project for schools. Discover how John Dyer paints and uses the process of painting to connect to the environment. Introduced by Sam Kendall, the Education Manager at the Eden Project. Sam interviews John Dyer and also Catherine Cutler who is the Biome supervisor and has expert knowledge of the tropical plants. This is a must watch for schools around the world and an amazing introduction to the art of John Dyer, the Eden Project, tropical rainforest, the ecosystem and tribal people of Borneo and the Last Chance to Paint project. Watch with your class and paint along. John uses acrylic paint on canvas and demonstrates his normal painting process to the children. ​ "We are loving the live art lesson from the Eden Project with artist John Dyer. Well done to our Year 6 children who joined in the live art painting class with John Dyer & The Eden Project. It was based on the rainforest and the children loved adding their own touches to their paintings." @Holytrinityrc ​ "This afternoon, we took part in an online art lesson coming from the Eden Project in Cornwall. We painted along with the artist, John Dyer, and created abstract rainforest pictures. Look out for our paintings…coming soon" @BPEFschools

"In each 45min webinar I have seen children create some of the best art of their lives. The children move way beyond drawing a picture and colouring it in. We enable them to have the confidence to express themselves and react to the subject as a professional artist would. It's an exciting process that is fast and direct. Unlocking each child's creativity and connecting them to the environment personally like this is the key to our future as raising awareness is the first big step to tackling climate change, and ecosystem collapse."
