NEW 'Ready, Steady, Paint!' challenge for Maritime Festival goers

A new challenge awaits at the 2017 Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival with local artist Ernie Childs. Ready Steady Paint will give visitors a chance to show off their creative skills. 

Take on the challenge

Are you feeling creative? Have you always wondered if you're a budding artist?

Ready Steady Paint is a structured 30-45 minute painting lesson given by local artist, Ernie Childs at this year's maritime festival on Saturday and Sunday.

Anyone from school age up can take part, but it is a structured class and you will be expected to participate from beginning to end.

Each person will craft a picture with a seafaring theme and be able to take their artwork home.

The class is limited to 20 people per class. Men, women, boys and girls (from school age upwards) are encouraged to take part. Children 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times and cannot be left in class on their own.

Classes will take place on both Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September. Start times are 11am, 1.30pm and 3pm.

Book your place now! Simply download the form, fill it in and email it back. Confirmation of your place will be sent via email.


Ready Steady Paint

Ernie put our amazing Maritime Festival sponsors through their paces earlier in the year as seen in the pictures. You don't need to be a brilliant artist, just willing to have a go as our sponsors found out. Several of them who said they categorically couldn't paint suddenly discovered a new talent!

Ernie and his wife Karen will talk you through every step of the way - who knows, you might discover a new skill ...
