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.

"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."
