My friends at Art World Records and I have decided to attempt to host the world’s largest online art lesson. We want to bring together thousands of people, of all ages, from households across the world and teach them how to draw the same picture at the same time. It will be an official Guinness World Records title attempt so we have the chance to make history... from home. The project is also raising money to support the fight against COVID-19 (we already have companies pledging £10 per employee that attends). In order the get the record, we need over 10,000 people to actively participate in the lesson, which means we will need a lot more than 10,000 people to register (we know that not everyone who registers will actually attend). So…please register NOW at and attend the lesson on the 21 May at 4:00-4:30pm BST. Thank you.
