The Big Draw is the largest drawing festival in the world! It happens throughout October, and this year, artSOUTH is joining in. All the participating venues are exploring the artSOUTH artworks through exciting and engaging drawing activities for families to do together. For example, on the Isle of Wight, they are looking at the stars for inspiration, with artist Laura Hathaway inviting you to create a map of new constellations as seen from another world. Come for an hour, or stay longer!

Explore the themes of artSOUTH through workshops and activities for all the family to do. Led by an artist, this is about learning new things and having fun! Eight artSOUTH venues have opened their doors for you to play and experiment – in one gallery, you might be looking at trees for inspiration; at another, books and writing.

A family pack is available at all artSOUTH venues, filled with fun-packed activities and things to do in response to the artworks. You can also download a copy here. 8 MB
