Draw your family


We are calling on all children from ages 6-18 years old to draw a picture of their families to celebrate family diversity.
Draw a picture of your family doing an activity that you enjoy doing together. As a guide you can complete the following sentence:

'My family loves to .... together'.

You can use your own creativity to draw your family, you can use, pencils, crayons, paint and so on, we just ask you to do the artwork on a sheet of A4 paper - the paper quality doesn’t matter and you can even use coloured paper if you wish!
Your picture will be displayed in our online gallery and some of the artworks will be selected to be displayed as part of the Paper Plane Dance Theatre Show (subject to funding).
