Join us at GoMA for a Big Draw event for all ages, with artist Gregor Wright, features in our current exhibition "Mark-making: Perspectives on Drawing". At this day-long event, you can contribute to the creation of a Kaleidoscope installation, which will glitter and shine through the heart of the balcony space within our Gallery.

The kaleidoscope was invented by David Brewster in 1816 who named his invention after the Greek words meaning "beautiful shape". Life can be messy, chaotic and overwhelming but when you change your perspective through creativity, you can see something truly beautiful - much like the inside of a kaleidoscope.
Changing your perspective can help you reimagine your life.

Using the artist Gregor Wright's artwork and our "Mark-making" show as inspiration, we encourage our audience to create their own emotional perspectives as drawings.
We will then collect and assemble each of these drawing perspectives to add to our own Kaleidoscope installation.

You have the power to embrace the nature of the Kaleidoscope by seeing the beauty of it from different levels on the gallery, bringing a unique viewing perspective.
The beauty and magic of thinking of life as a kaleidoscope is that you take all of the moments of your life - the good and the bad alike - and shape the sparkly bits together to create a spectacularly beautiful image.

The event is FREE and drop-in, for all ages! All materials will be provided.
