About Vancouver Draw Down
Now in its 4th year, Vancouver Draw Down is a celebration of drawing in everyday life that challenges preconceptions about drawing and works to reconnect EVERYONE with the power and creative pleasure of making marks. Vancouverites of all ages are invited to take part in hands-on drawing events, across the city in community centres, museums, art galleries and on the street! Projects, developed and led by professional artists, offer the opportunity to explore drawing in person and online. This day-long, city wide celebration focuses on the process, pleasure and diversity of drawing, rather than on skill and technical ability.
Vancouver Draw Down 2013 takes place on Saturday, June 15 in venues all across Vancouver, BC.
The Vancouver Draw Down was inspired by The Big Draw, part of the UK-based Campaign for Drawing, an independent charity which raises the profile of drawing as a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement.
