RABLEY CHALK WALK
10am -3pm on the 7,14,19,21,26 October
Sketch
 
Rabley Chalk Walk is a ‘walking-drawing’ trail making a changing landscape art installation of chalk drawings created by you! This Rabley Drawing Centre Project is part of ‘The Big Draw’, National Campaign for Drawing. http://www.thebigdraw.org
 
The chalk walk is a designated drawing trial into the landscape around Rabley Drawing Centre on the chalk downs east of Marlborough. 50 slates can be found located on fence posts, gates and on the trail for you to draw on. You are invited to make chalk drawings of the countryside around you: Draw a landscape panorama of the Savenake Forest, Martinsell Hill and the Ridgeway, Red Kites might be flying over-head? Take a magnifying glass to look at bugs and beetles, see tractors ploughing fields and the changing colours of Autumn, find hazel cobbs and spindle berries……come and enjoy art and nature!
 
Each day the changing chalk drawings on the trail will be photographed and posted on the ‘Rabley Chalk Walk’ Blog. www.rableychalkwalk.wordpress.com
