For the Big Draw, arts organisations around Glasgow organised workshops centered around the theme of 'drawing'.
Project Ability held two 'window art' workshops, where young people were shown how to use acetates. The final result is now on display in Trongate 103's window: a wonderful curtain-like banner with drawings of insects and spiders!
Anybody else feeling Halloween's getting closer?
