HIGH House Production Park welcomed the artists of tomorrow on Saturday 24 October as it hosted a Big Draw event. The Backstage Centre was the setting for a marketplace of drawing activities.
Scenic artists from the Royal Opera House Bob and Tamar Manoukian Production Workshop ran sessions on how to scale up pictures from small to large, Thurrock Music Services provided the soundtrack, playing The Nutcracker score as an accompaniment to the drawing and providing an assortment of instruments to sketch.
Artists from the High House Artists studios lent their skills and the Backstage Centre digitally projected the drawings created. The free event attracted 200 people to the Park, all keen to try new techniques and learn some new skills from the professionals.
