Andy Web is an ambitious young spider who lives in the National Gallery and dreams of becoming a famous artist. But Andy does not yet know how to draw, so he decides to teach himself by studying the works of the great masters and tracing their lines with his web. He tries each different style of art, but all the while he is dreaming of working in colour – which is hard for a spider with only white web to draw with.
Suddenly, he has a brilliant idea when he is inspired by the colours in the gallery lights. He uses them as a backdrop for his art so that the lights fill his web with colour!
