Calling All Artists....
After the success our first two Anonymous Art Auctions we are launching the Anonymous Art Auction 2018 to raise funds to improve our facilities and to ensure we can continue to offer an exciting and broad programme. This year, as well as helping the visual arts in school, we are supporting the plan to improve the canteen and in particular to reduce the use of plastics.
We are inviting the artists in the school community and other talented well-wishers to create and donate an artwork in any medium on an A5 postcard.
These will then be auctioned through the online auction site www.jumblebee.co.uk with a reserve price of £35.
The identity of the artists is not revealed until the auction closes so viewers base their choice purely on what they like, but with the potential that they could snap up a piece by a renowned artist or by someone celebrated in another field. The artworks are signed on the back so the purchaser eventually knows whose artwork they have purchased.
If you think you can help us by creating an artwork or sharing this request with a willing artist please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a postal address so we can send you the blank postcard to create your piece on and a reply paid envelope for its return.
If you have any questions or need more information don’t hesitate to contact us.
