'The Big Draw' ARTsCOOLuk in association with Heathfield Community College
ARTsCOOLuk worked with 8 primary Schools in the Heathfield area. Maynards Green, Mayfield, Dallington, All Saints and Saint Richards, Broad oak, Cross In Hand and Punnetts Town. Workshops were 2 hours long and were all inspired by this years theme 'Living Lines'. After the initial drawing workshops in the primary schools, the children were invited to a second workshop at Heathfield Community College where the children worked in groups to make either some giant spirographs or some Keith Haring inspired pieces, where the children drew around their bodies and used mark making to communicate body language. All the artwork was then displayed at Heathfield Community College for parents and friends to see. The objective of the workshops were to communicate the message to the children that drawing is an enjoyable activity for everyone, not just those that appear to 'gifted' at recording accurately.
