Working on a large canvas can free people up creatively, encouraging them to try new things. The best way to create a large canvas is to buy a long roll of white paper and cover a whole table with it.
Once residents are sat at the table, encourage them to draw, paint, print, scribble and stick anything they want … wherever they want!
Try putting some objects on the table to inspire new ideas: sticks to draw with ink, leaves and paint for printing, sponges, chalk, charcoal sticks, different brushes.
Residents can work on their own sections or decide to join their pictures / designs to create a larger piece of art.
