Artists we need you!

All pooches love to be pampered – and our Snowdogs are no different.

Each dog sculpture will sit and get their ears tickled by an artist’s paintbrush before being chosen by sponsors and given their special spot along the trail.

This is a unique opportunity for artists to use their creative skills to do something amazing to raise money for Tŷ Hafan so we can continue to support children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Standing at 1.5m tall, these large fibreglass sculptures provide a 3D blank canvas for you to unleash your creativity. Once they’ve been decorated, each Snowdog will be fixed onto a concrete plinth and transported to their temporary home at a point along the trail for all to enjoy.

By making your own individual contribution to Snowdogs: Tails in Wales, your work will be showcased to a mass audience and will enable you to connect with other artists, businesses and the wider Cardiff community.

Many thanks for your interest in the Snowdogs Art Programme, applications are now closed. We have been overwhelmed with the quantity and quality of submission we received and are preparing to display the designs to our sponsors for selection to be turned into a giant sculpture. We will be in touch with artists at the end of May to advise which designs have been selected and to arrange delivery/painting space. Sculptures must be decorated and ready for collection by 31 July 2017.
