Last week, our very own Rebecca Gerlings took part in her towns Big Draw!
Big Draw is a festival held every year in over 28 different countries, bringing together many different types of creatives with children of all ages with schools, libraries, galleries, museums and other such spaces.
The idea is that anyone can draw given the chance and can bring excitement into all aspects of life!
Here is a little account of the day by Rebecca and some pictures to accompany:
"We had an AMAZING two days! Over 30 local volunteers - including myself - pooled their enthusiasm, creativity and vision to pull off Epsom's first ever The Big Draw. The reactions from the nine local schools who attended on the Friday, and from the general public on the Saturday, by far exceeded all our hopes and expectations. We hit Epsom with a storm of chalk dust; spiralling drawings out of control; animating people lives; and bringing out the inner author and illustrator from child and adult alike. Epsom Library had over 800 people through the doors on Saturday, which is a true reflection of how many people joined in. We've had such positive feedback that we hope this is now set to become an annual local event. I can't wait to do it all again next year!"
