Oct. 22, 2009 - PRLog -- This half term, the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Alexandra Road is putting on a selection of very different art and storytelling workshops, in conjunction with the UK wide Campaign for Drawing, the ‘Big Draw.’

The Gallery has lots of extraordinary artist led activities planned for children and young people aged 5-16 years including ‘Drawing in the Dark’, ‘Storytelling’ and the unique ‘Drawing in 3D’ using special art materials.

There is also something for the adults too. On Saturday 31 October, people of all ages will be welcome to drop in and try the ‘Drawing Disco’, where artist Michelle Collins will lead people in drawing and movement in this fun and energetic event.

The Big Draw is a month-long season of participatory activities which tries to encourage people of all ages and abilities to expand the boundaries of drawing by experimenting with all sorts of materials and methods.

Over 1000 events will take place up and down the UK and there are several places in Swansea already taking part.

The activities at the Gallery will take place from Tuesday 27 – Saturday 31 October. No experience is necessary, just an eager mind and a creative enthusiasm.

For full details on all the Big Draw workshops, visit the Glynn Vivian website at http://www.swansea.gov.uk/glynnvivian. All events at the Gallery are free, but it is important to book in advance as places will fill quickly! To book your place please contact the Gallery Reception on 01792 516900.

Jenni Spencer Davies, curator at the Gallery commented, “We have had such a positive response from people who have attended out new workshop and events programme and with so many artists joining us this half term, the Gallery will be a exciting place to come and visit.”

If you fancy something a little more relaxing, take a stroll around the collections and autumn exhibitions. There’s plenty to keep the kids amused as October sees the launch of brand new art books for children.

Discover something new or learn about the history of Glynn Vivian, all in the beautiful surroundings of the city’s dramatic, Edwardian building.
