You can draw on the pavement with a piece of chalk, on the back of an envelope with a pencil, or in a treasured sketch book. However you choose to draw you can do it every day. In celebration of something that is accessible, creative and fun The Big Draw 2011 has its big day this weekend on 8 October. Events have been organised in museums, gallerys and public spaces all over the country created to get everyone and to keep everyone drawing. Find somewhere close to you and get yourself and your kids along to pick up a pencil and join in.
If you really want to embrace The Big Draw you could organise your own drawing session ‘Come Draw With Me’. At the end of the session choose your favourite drawing and send it into the competition. The winner will be given a pack of art materials at an awards ceremony in Spring 2011.
