SVAF and The Community Big Draw 2015*


‘Every drawing tells A story- Oddities and Nonsense’ is an exhibition of drawing by professional artists challenging the breadth of what contemporary drawing can be combined with an SVAF  Big Draw Day for the community to engage with a performance poet and artists on a monumental scale.

The Big Draw Day Community Draw

Our Big Draw Day was focused around ‘A Slice of Eggpie Lane : poems of a delicate essence and delight’ written by performance poet David Jinks and illustrated by SVAF member, artist Alison Berry

Readings from the nonsense poems inspired the children to create their own creatures to live in and explore Eggpie Lane, a real lane in Sevenoaks by joining in a huge floor drawing. The drawing was then hung in the gallery for one month as part of ‘Every drawing tells A story- Oddities and Nonsense’
