YOUNGSTERS in Headington chalked up a success when they took to the streets over the weekend.

They were taking part in a special arts event that allowed them to make chalk drawings on the area’s pavements.

The event had been organised by Oxford Brookes University mature student Jean Wykes, of Kennett Road, as part of the Big Draw, a global arts event taking place throughout this month, under the theme It’s Our World.

Oxford Mail:

  • Jack McManners taking part

Six-year-old St Michael’s Primary School pupil Jack McManners, from Headington, said: “I thought it was really good. I like drawing. I usually draw pictures of nature that I see in my garden.”

The drawings will be uploaded to the Big Draw website and Barclays Bank has agreed to display some of them in its Headington branch for half term.
