Armed with their pencils and easels, people of all ages have been getting creative and taking part in The Big Draw event in Norwich.

The free event, which started today and continues tomorrow, has been organised by the Norwich 20 Group and it is part of the Makers' Month festival which is taking place at The Forum throughout February with a different theme each week.

All day today models posed in various costumes for passers by to have a go at sketching.

Jayne Evans, The Forum's events and partnerships manager and the organiser of Makers' Month, said she was delighted with how many people got involved.

'The Big Draw is actually a country-wide campaign to get people involved in art and make it as accessible to as many people as possible,' she said.

'We had so many people take part in The Big Draw event at The Forum today, at least a couple of hundred people having a go.'

The Big Draw is one of a number of activities that have been taking place for the pencil and paint-themed week of Makers' Month.
