Visitors to a Westcountry aquarium this October half term will be able to let their artistic sides shine with the return of the popular annual event The Big Draw.
Running from October 26 until November 2, the event will see the National Marine Aquarium offer numerous arts and crafts projects.
All activities at the Plymouth attraction will be based around this year's theme: Sea Spaces.
Visitors will be encouraged to think about endangered sea creatures and what can be done to help them survive the multiple threats of overfishing, habitat loss, pollution and climate change. Youngsters will also receive a free sketch book.

Dr David Gibson, managing director of the aquarium, said: "It's great to one see of our most popular events returning this October.
The Big Draw provides our half-term visitors with some fantastic entertainment during the school holidays, giving them a chance to really interact with the fascinating creatures at the aquarium. We're looking forward to a great week."
With the huge variety of aquatic life providing inspiration, visitors will be asked to draw their favourite sea creature on a postcard along with a pledge of one thing they will do to help preserve our oceans.
The completed cards will be displayed throughout the aquarium for others to see.
