Art Department – Autumn 2022

Art Department – The BIG Draw

The BIG draw is a national festival that celebrates the importance of drawing and aims to encourage everyone to draw. The festival runs every year throughout October and there are lots of events across the country. This year’s theme was #ComeBackToColour

To take part at Alfriston we have had several events taking place in October, including a lunch time BIG Draw out on the playgroup. Pupils took part by using chalk to draw all the things that bring joy and colour to their lives.

We have also had two competitions running to encourage our pupils to be creative and get drawing: our annual Christmas card competition and a competition that offers pupils the exciting chance to have artwork displayed in the performance space art gallery. This deadline for this second competition has been extended to Friday 4th November so there is still time to enter. Please see below for details. Mrs Griggs
