the Road through York

Volunteers are needed to paint large panels (1m x 1m) of a small bit of “the Road through York”, specially commissioned for the event. The finished panels (320 in total) will form a massive picture between them, to be on display on the Racecourse.

The project is open to all, young and old. The next few sessions are planned on the 10th, 11th and 12th of April 10am-3pm at York Railway Institute, 22 Queen Street (other sessions tba).

You need to wear old clothes & bring an old flat tray/very large plate – to act as your palette.
