Picture yourself in our Big Draw

IN preparation for the autumn season, the owners of a Todmorden art gallery are inviting members of the public to drop in for a “Big Draw” session this weekend.

Mike and Rosemary Holcroft, of Water Street Gallery, hope people will join in the “Big Draw” session, creating a community portrait of Todmorden - and beyond - as part of this season’s special events.

The gallery is asking anyone and everyone to drop into the gallery for a fun drawing session this Saturday, September 22, between 10.30am and 3pm.

Rosemary said: “Themed ‘Face to Face’, you can draw a self portrait or a friend’s face on postcards as a quick sketch or more fully worked drawing.

“You don’t have to be a Leonardo or Hockney - this is for all abilities and ages, so come and enjoy being a part of this ongoing arts project to be exhibited in the gallery and elsewhere in 2013. It is a free event and materials, with expert help and encouragement on hand.”
