They also uncovered that he is an avid philanthropist – donating large sums of money to worthwhile causes including The Red Cross, St Jude’s hospital and children’s education charities. Everyone also took part in a car quiz where they guessed what cars the artist had used as inspiration for his artwork, including Rolls Royce and Formula 1, before taking part in their own colouring activities in his style. Everyone enjoyed the session and felt they had really learnt a lot about the artist and had some great discussions about him and his creations.
