Children's Art Competition

Charles Tunnicliffe was a famous artist from our town of Macclesfield. He loved looking at nature and drawing what he saw. He was inspired by nature.


Are you inspired by nature? Do you love being outside looking at animals and plants? If the answer is yes we want you to send us your creations.


We will make a slide show of all the pictures for our Tunnicliffe120 webpage and a video slideshow at the Library, Museum and Visitor Centre. There will also be an exhibition of some of the entries at the library during February half-term.
