Grand Welsh Art Challenge Progress
Why Grand Welsh Art Daffodil?
The daffodil is the national flower of Wales, and with over 13,000 different varieties of Daffodil, that’s a lot! Those varieties are divided down into approximately 12 different types, characterised by the size and shape of their petals and corona.
It is believed that if you spot the first daffodil of spring in Wales, your year will be prosperous and full! To celebrate all things we love about Wales, we are asking as many people, schools, associations and community groups as possible to make/draw/create a daffodil and submit it to our target of 1,000 daffodils across Wales.
What is the Grand Welsh Daffodil Art Challenge?
The challenge is to create your artwork using whatever materials you have available. Paint, use coloured plastic, egg boxes, spare card, whatever you can find to make the perfect daffodil. You could even use items from your recycling to create a work of art!
How can you get involved?
All you need to do now is set yourself a target and get as many people involved as possible. You could also use this as an opportunity to fundraise for Nanny Biscuit or a local charity of your choice.
All monies raised for A Grand Week in Wales are distributed in the following way;
20% to Nanny Biscuit to combat food poverty, isolation and loneliness, with the remainder evenly distributed between our brilliant national partner organisations;
- Green Paw Project – Tree planting and land regeneration
- CAFgas CIC – Free boiler repairs for people living in fuel poverty
