David Melling, a well known children’s author and illustrator, is a great friend and supporter of Living Paintings. His nephew, George Melling has also joined our team!
George lives locally and got in touch with us back in October to ask if there was any volunteering he could do to work towards his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award.
We jumped at the chance to have some extra help with our new Spot the Dog painting so got George set up with some painting he could do at home.
In order to qualify for the Bronze award George was required to paint for us 1 hour per week for 3 months. With this in mind we provided him with a nice selection of tactile pictures from our new Spot Bakes a Cake book, all the paints and brushes he would need and some painting guidance notes to get started.
George handed in his completed painting after the New Year and had done a fantastic job with these and it really showed how much effort and hard work he had put into this.
Thank you George for all your hard work!
