Mini Masters
An Art Education Project for the Hilliard Society

For the past two years, Jenny Brooks HS RMS has kindly organised a Mini Masters Project to encourage children and young people to have a go at Miniature painting. The children's entries are then exhibited alongside the annual exhibition in Wells Town Hall. 

If you would like to participate in 2019 Mini Masters, or know of a young person who would like to, please bookmark this page and check back soon when full details will be available.

In 2017 two age groups were invited to paint a portrait based on Holbein's famous work of Anne of Cleves (with the kind permission of Victoria and Albert Publications) and in 2018 they were invited to submit paintings of their pets or the view from their window, working from life or their own images. Certificates are awarded for each entry completing the project. 

The children's entries are then exhibited alongside the annual exhibition in Wells Town Hall.
