Mini Makers: Taking a Line for a Walk

Saturday 5 October / Free / 1 - 3pm / 4+ year olds and their families


October is Big Draw month in fifteen countries, and over 200,000 people take part every year.  At MK Gallery we celebrate the joys of drawing by welcoming The Drawing Machine who, throughout the month, will introduce you to the variety of techniques and styles which can be enjoyed by simply picking up a pencil.  Come along each week to enjoy a range of drawing experiences suitable for all the family. 


Today's activity encourages participants to play with line using a variety of different tools and mediums. We will be using chalk, charcoal, stones, sand, water sprayers, sticks and other interesting materials to create the journey the line will take.




Arts Awards 

Mini Maker also encourages you to consider taking part in Arts Award Discover, a national scheme open to all 5+ year olds. These awards are all about taking part in, and enjoying art. Register your interest during any Mini Makers session by visiting the Information Desk in the main gallery.  (A£10 administration fee applies to do your ‘Discover’ Award with MK Gallery.)  For further information please email
