Barber Art Challenge

Put pen (or pencil, paint, stick of charcoal - whatever you have to hand) to paper for the #BarberArtChallenge! 

Inspired by the great sculptures, prints and paintings featured in Miss Clara, we’ve put together a brand-new #BarberArtChallenge for you.

We'll share five animal-related themes to bring out your creative side every week. Look out for a new theme every Wednesday.

Whether it's a doodle on an envelope or a sketchbook masterpiece, we'd love to see what you come up with.

Share your art with us -

  • Use #BarberArtChallenge and tag @BarberInstitute on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram
  • Or, email your drawings to us using info@barber.org.uk

Our favourites will be shared each week (with permission) on this page and on our social media each Tuesday. We'll also choose a winner who'll be the recipient of a small prize.

All ages are welcome; no experience needed - we invite you to awaken your inner artist and have a go!

Don't forget to sign up to our email newsletter to stay updated.

Week six explores MYTHS AND LEGENDS!

This week, we challenge you to create your very own mythical beast.

Throughout history, animal-inspired myths and legends have popped up around the world…

Did you know the earliest reference to a unicorn, by the Greek historian Ctesias in about 400 BCE, was probably based on an Indian rhinoceros like Miss Clara?

Photograph your creation and share on social media or via email - and we’ll show off your art on social media and our website (with permission), and pick a winner every week. If that’s you, you’ll receive a prize that'll help you continue your journey of creativity!
