Child's drawing of autumn treesMillgate Community Centre

Local artist Elaine Winter will use the wellbeing aspects of being creative and also being connected with the natural world by using natural objects from our autumnal surroundings as the inspiration for the Big Draw session.

You will have the opportunity to use a wide range of drawing materials and techniques suitable for all ages.  The group will use some of the drawings to work together to make a bigger piece of art to celebrate the glory of autumn trees.
