Art in the Community
THE BALFRON BOOK: As part of FABFEST, a local art festival to encourage awareness and participation in the arts, I ran a series of creative workshops in which members of the local community were encouraged to contribute a drawn, painted or collaged page which reflected their life in the village. The pages were combined to make a handmade book which was donated to Balfron Library where it is available to view. The images below show some of the amazing pages that were contributed to this project.
THE BIG DRAW: The images below show a few of the ways we encouraged people to have a go at being creative during several Big Draw events that were run locally as part of the national Big Draw programme.
JUBILEE CRAFTS: A village event where flags were painted and plates designed to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee in 2012
