Postcards for The Big Draw!

What a lovely start to the morning at Art in the Park today! Some beautiful handmade postcards sent from all over the world arrived on our doorstep this morning.


You may remember that Art in the Park was participating in The Big Draw from our previous blog post – well, today we received our first flock of postcards! The Flock Project is a part of the The Big Draw 2011, a national campaign to encourage people to draw. People from all over the world were invited to draw a bird and write their thoughts about travel, migration or distance on a postcard. These postcards are then posted off on a journey visiting different destinations around the world until they finally land on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Art in the Park is acting as the Camberwell stop-over, where the postcards will be displayed for a short time before they continue their migration northwards.

Some of these postcards have come all the way from Bhutan and Spain! And a couple were even made here in Camberwell, at the Art in the Park word carving workshop. I can’t wait to see what else lands on our doormat!

And don’t forget, this Sunday October 9th Art in the Park will be holding an Art Extravaganza as a part of The Big Draw and Flock Project. Do come along to have a go on our fantastic paint machines and take part in our pottery workshops. More details here.

Check out some more of the postcards we have received on Art in the Park’s flickr account.
