Beachcomber launches environmental art challenge

The story of Rob Arnold, a beachcomber, artist, and environmental activist, is being used to inspire pupils in a new art competition.

Children are being challenged to produce a piece of artwork to illustrate “my role in protecting the environment” as part of this year’s Earth Day celebrations.

To mark Earth Day 2022, which falls on April 22, the competition invites pupils aged from three and upwards to explore the story of Rob Arnold, who is based in Cornwall and who collects plastic waste and turns it into awareness-raising art.

After experiencing Rob’s story, pupils will then be asked to create their own artwork. The winning entry will be awarded a fully funded trip to a local beach for their class. The competition is being run by immersive story-telling organisation Lyfta.
