John Dyer colouring templates for Christmas

"Create a colourful festive image of light and hope to pin in your window to show togetherness in these difficult and dark days we are living through. Colouring one of my downloadable festive designs can create an important moment of mindfulness and calm for everyone of all ages in your family. Have fun, pin the results in your window to decorate your street and take care." John Dyer

BBC Radio Cornwall has teamed up with artist John Dyer to bring you and your family a special Christmas colouring project to post on social media with the hashtag #BBCCornishChristmas and then to pin in your window to decorate your town or village. In these difficult times we want families to take a moment of mindfulness and relaxation to colour in one of the artist's fantastic designs.

We want to create a gigantic exhibition of your festive colouring in windows all over Cornwall and beyond, to give us all a sense of hope and to cheer up our winter windows and provide a splash of colour for everyone to enjoy and see.

John Dyer has drawn a Festive Bauble, Christmas Tree & Stargazy Pie for you to colour in.

Cornish artist Joanne Short is inspired by the wildflowers that grow in abundance throughout her native county and around the world. She often paints floral scenes that depict the delicate beauty of these blooms in their natural surroundings. Her floral paintings are full of vibrant colour and life. In this blog post, we will take a look at Joanne's work, as well as the work of other female artists and male artists who have painted flowers throughout history. We will explore the significance of floral art, and why it continues to be popular today.
If you love the ocean and everything about it, then you will love seascape paintings. Seascapes are a genre of paintings that depict the beauty of the sea, often with landscapes or other elements in the background. They can be both beautiful and peaceful to look at. In this blog post, we will explore seascape paintings and some of the artists who created them.
The Lamorna Cove to Porthcurno coastline has been a source of inspiration for artists for centuries. The rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, and dramatic sea views have captured the imaginations of painters, photographers, and sculptors alike. In this blog post, we'll take a look at some of the art that has been created in this area over the years. We'll also explore the work of contemporary artists John Dyer and Joanne Short, who both enjoy to walk and paint in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
There is something about painting gardens that seems to appeal to artists from all over the world. Perhaps it is the challenge of capturing the beauty and serenity of a garden in a painting. Or maybe it is simply the joy that gardens bring to people's lives. In this blog post, we will take a look at some paintings of gardens by artists from around the world. We will also explore how artists have been able to capture the unique beauty of different types of gardens, from flower gardens to vegetable gardens.
