Darwin Art Competition Launched !

Calling all young artists ! 
See your art on The John Dyer Gallery and on display at
the National Maritime Museum in Cornwall and Newquay Zoo.

We would like you to create a picture based on Darwin's voyage and discoveries. 

This could be a painting of the Tall Ship HMS Beagle sailing into Falmouth or at an exotic location, or perhaps you could paint a picture of the animals at your local Zoo. The possibilities are endless !

Please get your parents permission and then take a fantastic digital photograph of your picture - straight and well lit.

Email your photograph to us before July 2009 and in the subject line of the email type your nameage and titlesize and medium of the picture.
