|2006 ‘Seeking Common Treasure” Winner Inspiration Award
We had sketchbooks this year for all our aspiring artists. Spud told stories and sang songs from the Caribbean and the children loved the fancy dress life drawing. We had helium balloons in exchange for doing a drawing of the surrounding houses, calligraphy and map-making, a treasure hunt in th
e Church, a community ant’s eye view mural and free lunches in the Pub. The artists could design a t-shirt, create a nature collage along a woodland path, draw a gold encrusted treasure chest still-life or self-portraits. There was even a special tent for the over 18’s to encourage adults to fill their sketchbooks as well.
We developed an exciting mixed media teaching pack for the local schools, based on drawing shoes in 2-D and 3-D. We created a new dedicated website to display the schools’ work and keep the local community informed about the Big Draw activities.
