The 'Last Chance to Paint' workshop was hugely popular with families travelling specifically to attend and to meet the artist.
"It was amazing to see so many families sitting together and creating art based on the Amazon and Borneo rainforests. Nearly 60 children from the weekend have already sent us images of their beautiful paintings for the WorldGallery.online and they join children I have worked with in the Amazon and Borneo who are exhibiting their art on our gallery to remind us all of what they stand to lose." John Dyer.
Many families commented on what a joy it was to sit together and to use art to reflect on what the world stands to lose and how they could make small changes to help like moving to a plant-based diet rather than eating meat.
"This is the best and most relaxing experience I have had at the Eden Project ever."
John Dyer interviewed some of the children for BBC TV and they said:
"We need to save the world and painting will remind us we need to save all the animals."
"If there are no trees then there will be no animals as well, and then no humans."
Families and schools are invited to take part in https://www.lastchancetopaint.com and to use our free resources to inspire them to create a piece of art to exhibit online.
