THE BIG DRAW
The 2013 Big Draw ran from 1 October to 3 November across the UK and in fifteen other countries, with more than 200,000 people of all ages joining in 1000+ events. Hundreds of enjoyable, and often free, drawing activities connected people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists - and each other. These events were for those who love to draw, as well as for those who thought they couldn’t!
Since its launch in 2000, The Big Draw has successfully supported the Campaign for Drawing’s aims by encouraging everyone to draw. Big Draw events highlight the power of drawing to help people see, think, invent and take action.
2014 will see The Big Draw working in partnership with the Family Arts Festival for a second year to create the largest family arts festival in the UK and will run from 1 October to 2 November.
