This year marks the 11th anniversary of The Big Draw
, the month-long drawing season
which brings thousands of people together for the hands-on experience of drawing. Started as a local project in London, now takes place in over 1500 venues worldwide,
from Berlin to Barcelona, up to Sidney and Hong Kong. Participants - no matter how old, young, amateur or professional
- are offered workshops, talks and drawing sessions in parks, schools, museums, art galleries, national institutions, as well as such diverse sites as boxing clubs, subway stations and cafés. Everyone can leave their mark, with collaborative drawings made on hanging paper boards, albums and sketchbooks
. They can draw from life, paint huge murals and explore the history of the city while sketching its landmarks.
