Every October over 1200 UK venues, from scout huts and schools to national museums and palaces, take part in The Big Draw. This annual programme demonstrates that drawing is the perfect medium for learning, observation, self-expression and fun. Wide-ranging events and themes span the arts and sciences, proving that drawing can be an enjoyable public activity as well as a private passion.
