The Big Monster Draw

The Verbal Arts Centre teamed up with Art Take Part to celebrate ‘the Big Draw’ during the Halloween celebrations this year. Halloween means MONSTERS and we invited entrants to create an original monster of their own. Monster entries were everything from something almost human, to a disgusting big blob or a giant scary troll, the only limit was the children's imagination!
