Paint a bauble in the style of your favourite Abstract Expressionist to hang on the RA Christmas tree or take home with you.

The RA Christmas tree is looking a little underdressed, so we’re inviting visitors and artists to help us decorate it with painted baubles inspired by our Abstract Expressionism exhibition.

Come along to the RA on selected days when we’ll be providing baubles and art materials courtesy of Cass Art. There will not be an instructor so just drop by and get stuck in – come prepared to let your imagination loose and get your hands dirty!

You can hang your finished creation on our tree or keep it for your own at home, but most importantly, share a picture of it on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #AbExmas and you could win a Christmas hamper filled with goodies. See full details of the competition here.
