The Big Draw 2013
The Big Draw this October
Make a mark or explore all things linear – join us for a series of free events in October as part of The Big Draw [external link], the world’s biggest celebration of drawing.
Drop in on the evening of Friday 4 October, take some inspiration from a series of ten-minute talks around paintings in the collection and then help create an art installation of a futuristic paper city.
There's also a special Talk and Draw for over-65s as part of Silver Sunday on 6 October.
