Big Draw event to be held at Craven Museum and Gallery
8:00am Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
Craven Museum and Gallery will look to the future when it holds a Big Draw event on Saturday.
Artists Helen Peyton and Hannah Chesterman will be present from 2pm to 4pm to help visitors draw, sponge, print, paint and design their ideas.
The event is part of a nationwide initiative spearheaded by independent charity The Campaign For Drawing. Hannah said: “The Big Draw will give us chance to look to our past and future through art.
“In this Big Draw workshop we will tackle the subject of tomorrow as we question how museum exhibits could be improved and ask what museums might collect in 100 years’ time.
“Using black and white as our palette we will explore a variety of tools including sticks, sponges, fingers, brushes, pens and pencils to create a museum artefact for the future. This exciting and energetic workshop is fun for all the family and no previous drawing experience is required.”
The Big Draw also gives people the chance to sample some of the creative activities that will be provided by Skipton’s Granary Arts workshops throughout the autumn.
The museum is based in Skipton Town Hall and for more details, phone 01756 706407, e-mail email@example.com or visit the website cravenmuseum.org
