THE CAMPAIGN FOR DRAWING
The Campaign for Drawing has one aim: to get everyone drawing!
Drawing helps us to understand the world, to think, to feel, to shape and communicate ideas. The Campaign
shows that it is fun, accessible to everyone and invaluable - in education and everyday life.
The Campaign's annual Big Draw festival runs throughout October. Over 1400 organisations in the UK and
twenty other countries participate - offering events for all ages and abilities.
From 18 October to 3 November 2013, The Big Draw is joining the Family Arts Festival, to encourage more events
for families of all shapes and sizes.
Annually, the 12 most exciting Big Draw events win Drawing Inspiration Awards. New organisers and those planning to take
part will be amazed by the breadth of award-winning projects.
Of course, drawing is not just for October, and we will flag up year-round ways to join the drawing community.
Catch up with TEA (Thinking, Expression and Action), an 18-month programme for 80 secondary art teachers,
aiming to enrich students' drawing experiences. Find case studies on
Drawing in Action.
The TEA Symposium at the National Gallery on 9 November 2013 will launch the resulting resources.
TEA is a collaboration with the National Society for Education in Art & Design and
National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies, sponsored by the Helen Rachael Mackaness Trust.
