Free October half-term family activities at Leeds Kirkgate Market
Leeds Kirkgate Market is inviting people to take part in their Big Draw Festival AND … #DrawTheDragon !!!
To help, the Market has invited experienced artist and artist educator John Mayson (ArtJohn) to create a fantastic mural of the Leeds Kirkgate Market dragon which lives in the Market Kitchen area.
Visiting families will be able to work with ArtJohn to create drawings inspired by the sights, sounds, smells and characters of the market.
You can let your imagination run when designing your drawing. It might be a drawing of a crab from the famous fish and game row or a flower, colourful carpet or unusual piece of fruit.
The drawings will then be transferred onto a giant dragon outline by ArtJohn using an old skool over-head projector.
The drawings will be layered within the dragon outline to create a vibrant and detailed collaborative piece of permanent artwork for everyone to enjoy.
