VE Day Friday Draw and Create

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

Friday 8th May is the VE Day 75th Anniversary of the end of World War 2. As part of the Mid-Week Draw weekly drawing sessions I organise at Brighton Museum, I thought it would be fun to come up with a few creative ideas around this special theme.

Have a go and have fun!

I made a couple of doves to let you see how effective they are.

You can upload your model and see if we can make a flock of peace doves!
