Join illustrator Si Smith and Artist educator Sonia Moran for Sunny Bank’s inaugural Big Draw children’s event!

We’ll have a stack of drawing tools and materials for you to try out, and these workshops will be accessible to everyone – age is no barrier, and whether you’re a budding Beryl Cook, a possible Picasso, or virtually Van Gogh you’re all welcome to come and have a draw with us.

(And of course, when you’re done drawing, you can always hang around for a look round our ‘Lullabies in Lockdown’ exhibition. It’s really great…)
