Big Draw at the Museum!

Today, there has been lots of drawing and colouring fun around the museum to help celebrate the National ‘Big Draw’ event. 

Local artist Jim Kirkwood has been inspiring families to pick up their pencils and draw. Visitors were sketching objects around the museum and creating stories with their pieces.

Today also sees the launch of the UK Coloured Pencil Society exhibition ‘The amazing world of coloured pencil art’. This exhibition displays over 100 pictures demonstrating the amazing artistry that can be achieved through using coloured pencils. Members of the group were in the museum today inspiring visitors with their pencil pallets! ‘The amazing world of coloured pencil art’ runs until 25th November 2012.


About janineclarefox

My name is Janine Fox and I am Assistant Museum Officer at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. My role is to care and document the museum collection. Working within a small team means I also help install exhibitions, carry out research for enquiries and assist with larger museum projects. What inspires me? Apart from tea and chocolate, I would say travel, photography, art and anything old with a story to tell! It will come as no surprise that I love my job; I work with objects, ensuring that they are looked after, made available for the public and that their stories are recorded for perpetuity.
