Witch Crafts- The Big Draw - October 30, 2010


Studio 106 Art Gallery is looking forward to welcoming families at Witch Crafts – The Big Draw, a free creative activity day as part of the 2010 Big Draw Event. Taking the celebration of Halloween as its focal point, Witch Crafts- The Big Draw provides a relaxed and stimulating environment for children and their families to create seasonal inspired art pieces, whilst exploring their talent within the drawing medium. The encouraging of learning new artistic skills through the event adheres to this year’s Big Draw theme, that of “make your mark on the future.”


By taking part in the activities available, the children will not only be making a physical mark, with the creation of their art pieces, but also, the promise of a deeper artistic contribution through exposure to the discipline. Such an understanding at an early age is an invaluable tool in breeding a heightened and refreshed appreciation of art.


The fun nature of the event provides an engaging incentive for children to experience new skills and appreciate the importance of drawing as a genesis for artistic growth. Through such activities as costume design, face painting and lantern making, the wide reaching nature of mark making within the art discipline is highlighted, fostering greater understanding and ways of seeing. Providing a springboard for children’s vast imaginative capacities, Witch Crafts – The Big Draw celebrates the exciting possibilities art can offer, whilst encouraging communication and realisation of inherent creative ideas.


Placing a strong emphasis on arts education, Studio 106 is committed to providing a series of engaging workshops, courses and exhibitions designed to ignite artistic potential in both children and adults within a professional gallery context. The nurturing and displaying of local artistic talent is the paramount agenda of the gallery, allowing artists of all ability and age range to build a sustained relationship with art and experience its life affirming qualities. With a strong emphasis on young artists, the gallery provides the training, support and advice needed for children to thrive artistically, allowing them, at this crucial stage, to begin making their mark.


Studio 106 Art Gallery provides a wide range of creative workshops for both adults and young people. If you are interested in our programme and would like to know more please contact our Education Manager Miriam Austin at
