Art & Sport



Art or sport? Sometimes it feels like the same thing according to the stamp-printed notes in this Oxfam Bookshop window. 

'Catching movement' was the title of a Big Draw celebration of drawing held last October with young people from Lord William's School and John Hampden School. They made drawings from observation (one was an accomplished gymnast) that became cut-out Olympic figures, to be inked and printed together on an etching press. 



The prints have been photographed to make a concertina book, and are still showing in the window of Topsport, 14 Buttermarket, Thame until after the Paralympics. 

The 'Big Draw' starts again in October (www.campaignfordrawing.org)
