On the 12th May the second Big Park Draw took place in Victoria Park, Bristol. The conditions for the event were perfect. The sun shone, and people came out in large numbers to take part in what was an extremely enjoyable and fulfilling day.
The day was run by David Smith, Julian Gregg and Meri Rizk. Meri also provided funding for the shelter and materials in memory of her sister Imogen, a former FIne Art student at the then Bristol Polytechnic. Imogen went on to follow her belief to teach and encourage art as something that everyone can do and enjoy.
That certainly was the tone for the day. A joyous day where young and old came out to express themselves in chalks and pencils, charcoals and inks. A number of people commented on how they hadn’t drawn for years, but they really enjoyed the event, and certainly would take part again.
Well … they have the opportunity when the next Big Park Draw takes place on the 21st July, in Victoria Park. If you find yourself in Bristol on that date, why not join in? Julian, Meri and David look forward to seeing you there.
