Break a World Record!

15 May 2020
Break a World Record!

Mascalls Academy has been selected as an Art World Records Ambassador, and they would like to invite us to be part of breaking the world record for the largest online Art lesson! This will be an official Guinness World Records title attempt so if it is successful, we will all be making history - from home! Additionally, the project is helping raise money to fight COVID-19.
The lesson will take place online on the 21st May at 4:00-4:30pm BST. It will be led by World Book Day author and children's book illustrator, Rob Biddulph. You might know him from #DrawWithRob (as seen on BBC) or his books, Odd Dog Out or Blown Away. The lesson is free to join and suitable for everyone at home, all you need to do is register at artworldrecords.com.

All you have to do is register at artworldrecords.com and pick up those pencils on the 21st May! Parents, family and friends are all encouraged to join in too!

When we return to School, after months confined to our homes, wouldn't it be great to say that we were all part of breaking a world record!
