The Big Draw is heading for Artistsmeet
STEAM powered creativity!
Returning after a highly successful year in 2015, The Big Draw is running in Three Rivers again this October with another host of fun events and activities that appeal to budding artists of all ages and abilities.
The 2016 theme is STEAM! Bringing together Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Maths, STEAM represents the campaign to give the arts parity with other subjects so that STEM, becomes STEAM. STEAM also recalls our Industrial past and the fusion of creative innovation, enterprise and the arts.
In celebration of this, Artistsmeet will be showcasing a family friendly exhibition courtesy of artist and children’s illustrator Jane Glynn, which will feature colourful paintings, eye popping patterns, mini animation and handmade books.
Tuesday 4th October – Tuesday 1st November 2016 Jane Glynn is an artist, illustrator and educator. Following an MA in Children’s Book Illustration in 2011, she was awarded a fellowship with Digswell Arts and currently works from their studios in Digswell, Hertfordshire. This exhibition shows work from a growing visual diary that began with a handmade book for every day of the year in 2012, evolving into a different form for each year. The diary also acts as a springboard for other work: animations, paintings, drawings and graphic stories, also shown here – ww.janeglynn.co.uk
There’ll also be a mini series of workshops to get your creative steam power pumping!
