  • Description/Summary

    The humble pencil is a part of everyday life which most of us take for granted. But for an artist, it's so much more than just a writing took. It is the instrument of creative expression and can produce pieces which can wow!

    Play with your pencils and erasers and see just how much can be achieved. We'd love to hear how you get on.

    See how many different different marks you can make, jot notes next to them and share your discoveries with fellow members.
