Hundreds of visitors flocked to Rugby Art Gallery and Museum on Saturday for the Big Draw.

This year’s celebration of creativity was inspired by the Rugby World Cup, with a packed programme of rugby-themed activities on offer for aspiring artists of all ages.

Visitors had the chance to decorate rugby balls with artist Kate Morris, attend life drawing sessions with players from Newbold Rugby Club and members of Rugbeards, and contribute to an animated film created with time-lapse photography.

Meanwhile youngsters created rugby players from lollipop sticks and rolled rugby balls in paint to help create a giant art work.

With face-painting and competitions running throughout the event, the Big Draw was a feast of creative fun for all the family.

Cllr Heather Timms, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for economy, development and culture, said: “The Big Draw has become one of the major events in Rugby Art Gallery and Museum’s calendar, and I’m delighted this year’s event proved as popular as ever.”
