YOUNGSTERS will get the chance to show their creative sides this half term at the district museum's newest artistic event.

Epping Forest District Museum's Big Draw has been organised to encourage children to create their own work of art based on the watercolours of artist Eric Dawson whose pieces are currently on show.

There are three drop-in sessions available at the museum, in Sun Street, Waltham Abbey: this Saturday October 23, Tuesday October 26 and Saturday October 30.

The sessions run from 2pm to 4pm at a cost of £1 per child. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

For more information call the museum on 01992 716882.
