Artist creates colouring project in Ramsey

A colouring project has been designed by an artist in Ramsey for children and the community.  Si Mitchell has created a wall design in the middle of the town to encourage children to take a photo of it and the print it out to colour at home.

Mr Mitchell has also been giving out free download links to his artwork for people to colour and he has been doing this every day for the last couple of weeks, to provide a fun activity for children and adults to take part in, during the lockdown.  He said,   “When I went on a run the other day, I noticed a huge white board had been erected in the town.  I came up with the idea to do a huge local colouring page and contacted the owner: to explain my idea.  It’s for the community to take a picture when go for their daily walk which they could colour at home by printing it out or on a computer, or they could draw it themselves.  I wanted to thank everyone for doing their bit, especially the NHS and every single person who is working and taking this seriously, you are being amazing

Residents in Ramsey have said it has brightened their day.  One resident said “as you can imagine after three weeks in lockdown it gets a bit dull, but we were delighted this week to walk down the Great Whyte and see this new bill board.  It’s such a joy to see other sharing their gifts for the community to use.”
