THE BIG DRAW 2010
October 2010 is Big Draw month in twenty countries and on five continents. Launched in 2000, this annual initiative has grown from 180 events in the UK to over 1500 worldwide. The Campaign aims to use drawing to connect visitors with museum and gallery collections, urban and rural spaces – and the wider community – in new and enjoyable ways.
Every Big Draw season offers unlimited scope for those who love to draw and those who think they can’t.
Take a look at what’s happening in your area and join an event. More venues are added daily, so be sure to visit again.
Big Draw Day is Saturday 9 October, but events start at the end of September and continue until early November.
Join us on 22 and 23 October for Make your Mark on the Future: From London Bridge to Tower Bridge. At our London Highlight event you can choose from thirty activities at eight venues, and collect your free Daler-Rowney art materials. No one is too young or old to take part in this free drawing bonanza.
It’s not too late to organise an event and enter for a Drawing Inspiration Award. Publicise your plans now on our regional listings pages and use our logo on all marketing materials.Visit www.facebook.com/BigDraw2010 and post information, photos about your event. Tell your friends.
The Big Draw is sponsored by Daler-Rowney and Cass Art.
