Each group was asked to create a model to showcase the proposal and summaries the drawings. With limited resources and tight time restrictions imagination is key. #reimaginingmcr #northernsoul2018 #OurTownHall

As well as digital skills our EVENTS program will use the skill of drawing.

"Drawing aids us to be, teaches how to observe and understand, to describe reality, to become aware of the elements which comprise the whole of its textures, its colours, its contours its proportions and its shade of light."
