Last weekend, artists and Crawley residents alike gathered for some artistic fun at two Big Draw events in the town.
The Big Draw is a national event offering thousands of enjoyable, and mainly free, drawing activities which connect people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists, designers, illustrators – and each other.
The weekend’s artistic events were held at Crawley Library on Saturday, where residents were encouraged to study and draw the range of fruits and vegetables on offer around Crawley with the help of artist Rachel Cowell. And on Sunday, they took a trip to Worth Park to explore nature’s finest around the lake with artist Jo Harrison.
Cabinet member for Leisure and Cultural Services, Councillor Chris Mullins, said: “It was great to see so many children and adults take part in The Big Draw this year, as it’s important that we take advantage of Crawley’s beauty spots like Worth Park while encouraging people to pick up a pencil and paper and join in with the community spirit.”
The last Big Draw event will be held on Wednesday (29th October) at Waterlea Adventure Playground in Furnace Green for a tree-themed afternoon of indoor and outdoor activities.
