The Big Draw: Drawing Tomorrow
This year’s Big Draw theme is ‘Drawing the Future’. Come and be inspired by the current 'Capturing the Brontës' exhibition, this playful exhibition is a surreal look at the past and future, taking influences from the Brontës, their pets and Victorian visitors to the Parsonage. With local artist Vic Bhuta you can come and create your own vision of tomorrow.
“Since its launch in 2000, The Big Draw has successfully supported the Campaign for Drawing’s aims by encouraging everyone to draw. Big Draw events highlight the power of drawing to help people see, think, invent and take action.” For more information please visit the Big Draw’s website here
