From Monday 27th until Friday 31st October the Dean Heritage Centre is encouraging visitors to use sights and sounds from around their indoor galleries and outdoor five acre site to inspire them in drawing, painting and photographing pieces for the National ‘Big Draw’ Campaign.

This year, the theme is ‘It’s Our World!’ and, with the help of local artists, the DHC’s ‘Big Draw Week’ will give potential Picasso’s and budding Banksy’s the chance to learn new drawing skills and get creative in a range of artistic mediums.

Brian will be focussing on ‘Plant photography and getting to know your camera’ (Please bring your own camera), Amanda will be working with mixed media including paint and clay and Doug will be working with bright and coloured acrylics.

The ‘Big Draw’ campaign is celebrated in fifteen countries every October and over 200,000 people take part every year. The purpose of the campaign is to highlight the importance of drawing by encouraging people to see, think, invent and take action.
