“The Big Draw”

9 Nov

So pleased that the Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery are kindly displaying some of the drawings created during our high schools Big Draw project held in October. It gives everyone a chance to see for themselves the talent and skill of this next generation; not solely in terms of artistic ability alone but also in terms of resourcefulness and originality. So proud to be part of this process; the museum is open Monday – Saturday and the drawings are being displayed as ‘artwork of the month’ so there is no admission cost to see them.
