A mum from Mellow’s class gave me a tip about a great festival happening this month, which is perfect for half term: The Big Draw 2011
It sounds like a lot of fun for children of all ages and with events organised all over the country: http://www.campaignfordrawing.org/home/index.aspx
I’m going to check it out this week-end and go to artsdepot in North Finchley (www.artsdepot.co.uk). This Sunday 23 October from 11am to 5pm, artdepot is organising the following event:
‘Join artsdepot for a play day dedicated to pencils, paper, crayons, sketchbooks and all things to do with drawing. Help create artworks on a massive scale, take part in workshops jam-packed with creative ideas, and grab tickets for the show Draw Me A Bird (with performances at 12pm and 3pm in the Studio Theatre, age 3+).’
You don’t need tickets to participate in the free drawing events but you do need to book for the shows as there are a limited number of places at £7.
The Big Draw will also be at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea (20-23 Oct) and in Hampstead (27-30 Oct).
Check it out.
