Art Session with Doug Farthing MBE and Beth Timmins
Doug Farthing MBE is a well known war artist and veteran from 2 Para Regiment. Doug currently teaches at the Royal Drawing School in London. He has been extremely busy painting and drawing on Tumbledown alongside the Falklands War Mapping Project team. Doug is truly inspirational and the group was very engaged and enjoyed learning how to use charcoal to create wonderful pieces of art work.

Beth Timmins is also involved with the Falklands War Mapping Project. She is an archaeologist, BBC reporter and journalist. Beth talked to the group about the mapping project and the archaeological aspect. She is currently doing a PHD at Oxford University studying DPhil in Archaeology - a comparative analysis of how Syrian, Nigerian and Ethiopian communities are impacted by the destruction of cultural heritage during and after armed conflict. A massive thank you to Doug and Beth for giving up their valuable time to spend with the youth group.
