Across London this week there’s the Big Draw Campaign with the clear aim: to get everyone drawing!
Why? Drawing helps us to think, invent and communicate – regardless of age and ability.
There will be all sorts of activities and events taking place across the city. Meet children’s illustrators and filmmakers and animators and spend the afternoon taking part in a series of enjoyable drawing activities. The event is free and no booking is required.
As part of the Big Draw, head to Discover for a day packed full of monstrous events! Here’s what’s happening:
