Artists in Fenland take part in free international Big Draw event during half term

ARTISTS across Fenland got the chance to take part in an international festival of drawing for free during half term.

Hundreds of venues around the world took part in this year’s Big Draw, an annual initiative to give all ages a chance to unleash their creative side.

Workshops funded by Fenland District Council’s Youth District Council and organised by Atelier East, were held at the Whittlesey, Wisbech and Fenland, Chatteris and March museums.

March-based artist Taymaz Valley said: “It is time to give the younger generation the tools to make a fairer more creative society, where you are rewarded for self expression and hard work.”
