Swansea artists Rose Davies, Sylvie Evans, Jenny Chisholm and Graham Parker will be demonstrating drawing as a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement but most of all, fun.

"We want to break down barriers to art and culture so its great to have people popping in to watch us work, have a chat or better still or join in," says Graham Parker.

"I'd like to see the words 'I can't draw' dropped from our vocabulary. Drawing is a basic human skill useful in all walks of life but its also great fun and everyone can do it. It's a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement and helps us all to see, think, invent and take action."
