RESIDENTS can show off their creative sides next Saturday (July 9) when Bromsgrove’s Big Draw returns to the town’s Methodist Centre, Stratford Road.
The event is open to all ages and participants can draw, doodle or colour to their hearts content between 10am and 2.30pm.
Because it falls on the same day as Bromsgrove Carnival, the Big Draw also has a ‘Rio’ theme.
It is part of the World’s biggest drawing festival – the ‘Big Summer Draw’ – and is backed by the Bromsgrove Festival, Cass Art, Charles Lovell and Co, Bromsgrove Library, Charles Howell, What!, Robert Oulsnam, Morrisons, Santander, Artyfacts, ASDA and Bromsgrove Methodist Centre.
Participants are urged to capture the ‘big community picture’ and the fun of local carnivals, festivals, street parties, fairs, and fetes.
Art materials will be provided and refreshments will be available until 12.30pm. The venue is accessible for disabled people.
The event also ties in with the Bromsgrove Festival drawing activities at the library where residents have designed postcards to show what Bromsgrove means to them.
Laura Brodrick, co-ordinator of Bromsgrove’s Big Draw, said they were really excited to be back with the carnival theme, which she hoped would inspire some vibrant drawings and she said she would love to hear from anyone who can help out on the day, especially if they had artistic talents to share.
