Paint a poppy, make a donation and be part of our special WWI 100th Anniversary Exhibition

As we mark the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, the SAA has partnered with The Royal British Legion to stand together and say Thank You to the courageous men and women who served and sacrificed for our country.  Let’s remember them the best way we know how – by painting!

We hope to gather together as many paintings and drawings of poppies as we can, as well as raising money for this vital cause.  Also, part of the centenary celebrations we’ll be holding a special exhibition.

Here’s how you can get involved with our latest challenge:

Using any medium, create your own poppy picture on any paper of your choice, ensuring it’s exactly 125mm x 125mm (4.9” x 4.9”).

Send it to us along with your completed entry form (download one here).
