Start the Art


Start the Art

Tuesday 6 October / 11am - 12 noon / £1 on the door*

For accompanied children aged under 5


Reserve tickets


Join us for October's Start the Art as we celebrate The Big Draw; the world’s biggest drawing festival. Inspired by this year’s theme, Every Drawing Tells A Story, this month we will explore drawing and storytelling through expressive mark making, printing and colour.


We kick off the month with a session all about mark making and the different ways we can express ourselves through line and texture. From energetic squiggles to soft and relaxed smudges, what do your drawings say about you?



Places are limited, and booking essential. Ensure you book the correct number of child tickets for children that you need and adult tickets for adults. Thank you.


Please note, as of 1 September 2015 we will be making a small charge of £1 per child for each Start the Art session. The charge is payable on the door, but due to the popularity of the sessions, please reserve your tickets online.
