Artists urged to 'bone up' for Big Draw.

ARTISTS in north Warwickshire are being encouraged to stretch the boundaries of "still life" - by taking a close-up look at skulls, skeletons and bones.

North Warwickshire Borough Council is inviting people to take part in the Big Draw this year by concentrating on how to keep bones healthy.

Camille Archer, the council's community development officer, said: "We want people to think about how to keep their bones healthy and to draw from our unique temporary collection of bones, from animals to human skeleton models."

"We will have games and prizes and will be creating a calendar and postcards of artwork collected from the event to help share healthy-eating messages later in the year."

The Big Draw in Atherstone will take place on two dates: this Saturday at St Michael's Church (2-4pm) and on Wednesday, October 29, at Atherstone Memorial Hall (11am-3pm).

Details from Camille Archer on 01827 719 356.
