Children got their hands messy as they took part in the world’s largest drawing festival at a Jewish community centre.

JW3 in Finchley Road hosted The Big Draw on Sunday as part of their Get Creative Family Arts Festival. People of all ages joined in the challenge of telling a story through a picture, which was the theme of this year’s event by transforming canvasses.

Mia David, seven, and Tali Asherson, seven, smiled for the camera with paint-covered hands to show they enjoyed the day.

Caitlin Collinson, a spokeswoman for JW3, speaking of the event’s success, said: “The Big Draw is a nationwide drawing festival. We were delighted to welcome over 40 budding artists who enjoyed a variety of free drawing activities.

‘‘It was extremely inspiring to see diverse groups of families working and creating together.”
