Richard Scott invited the children of Ummangaliso Primary School to join him in a painting session in his studio. Richard began by giving the children a 30 minute explanation of how he paints and how he makes a living as an artist – from his technique of applying paint to the canvas to how he runs his career as a business.
The children were given a canvas of their own paint for each to keep as a treasured memento of a very special and happy day.
