Logo for Campaign for Drawing and Big Draw

The Campaign for Drawing has a simple aim - to get everyone drawing

It raises awareness of drawing's power to make us see, think, invent and act.

Each October, The Big Draw runs over 1500 events in conjunction with the UK's galleries, libraries, heritage sites and community centres to encourage people to pick up a pencil and start drawing.

For more information about what's on this year go to The Big Draw website.
