PRESENTED BY DEVONPORT REGIONAL GALLERY’S YOUNG MEMBERS, THE DROOGS

 

Young people in Devonport and surrounding areas are invited to share their art with the community by filling a sketchbook, provided by Devonport Regional Gallery.

Sketchbooks can still be collected from the following locations from Thursday 2 March: Devonport Regional Gallery, Devonport Bookshop, Devonport LINC, Blue Apple Gift Store and SPLASH.

Fill your sketchbook with drawings, ideas and writing using pencil, ink, paint, charcoal, collage, pastel and more, and then drop it back at a collection point before Wednesday 29 March.

Filled sketchbooks will be presented in an exhibition during National Youth Week at Devonport LINC from 31 March – 9 April.

The Sketchbook Project celebrates and promotes young people and their talents in the North West, and provides a space for public viewing of their work.
