Emma Watson and Rupert Grint recently showed off their artistic abilities for Kith & Kids, a charity that works with disabled children and young people. The young actors each contributed a 16" x 20" acrylic painting on canvas:
- Emma Watson's Painting: Teddy Bears Picnic
- I am a big fan of Art which I have always enjoyed, so it was a pleasure for me to be given the opportunity by 'Kith & Kids' to paint a picture for them.
I wanted to create something to remind people that the painting they had bought had been for a children's charity. I wanted to paint something for 'Kith & Kids' that was happy cheerful and a subject for children. A very ill child came to visit the Harry Potter sets all the way from Germany; I talked to her for a few minutes and she handed me these two lovely bears that she had brought all the way from her home. One a girl the other a boy, they were dressed to match. Hence the two little bears in my painting. I hope you like it. Love Emma Watson xxx
- Rupert Grint's Painting
- I'm currently filming in the HARRY POTTER Films and art is one of my many interests. My picture was inspired by my favourite style of art surrealism. I wanted to create an image that was different and unusual. Please note this picture can be viewed upside down also.
A gala event titled "Art 4 All" took place on October 9th, exhibiting and auctioning off their and other celebrity paintings. So far, the event has raised £22,000 for Kith & Kids, but there are still opportunities to contribute to this worthwhile cause since there are still works for sale, (including Rupert's painting)!
