Into The Woods: An Art For Wellbeing Challenge – November 2023

Celebrate trees this November by taking part in Into The Woods, an art for wellbeing challenge for you to try from home in your own time – run by arts for wellbeing initiative Medley. November’s the time of year when trees stand out the most, as they tint glowing colours and cast off their leaves – no wonder it’s when Tree Week takes place every year.

This challenge will run as part of The Big Draw Festival 2023, with its theme Drawing With Senses – enjoying trees is very multi-sensory.
