Join in HVA’s BIG LITTLE secret!
This is a first for HVA – the Secret Art Sale 2014. It’s ‘BIG’ because it’s an opportunity to raise funds for charity, get that feel-good factor and provide pleasure to art lovers too. All works will be sold for £20 each and all proceeds go towards Macmillan Cancer Support. It’s ‘LITTLE’ because we ask you to donate an original artwork that’s only the size of a postcard. The ‘secret’ is that your signature goes on the back of the postcard, so the buyer won’t definitely know who has created the work until they’ve bought it. Remember that before you finish your work with a flourish!
