Big Draw Exhibition 9th November 2014

Posted on Updated on

All the drawings we did in the two sessions of the Big Draw were exhibited last Sunday at City Arts. A few photos below if you could not make it. The participants enjoyed seeing the display, organised following the street “elevation” but grouping the same buildings drawn by different people together.

CHILDREN’S ART SESSIONS

Posted on Updated on

Where to go in Newbury for children’s Art Club sessions? – we were inspired by a recent session I attended in Exeter – we would like children to explore creativity and experiment with materials, colour and different techniques.
