The Big Draw 2013
Comic Book Heroes
Sunday 6 October 12noon - 4pm
FREE FAMILY EVENT
Dust off your cape, shield and mask and fly to the Holburne Museum for a day of comic book inspired art activities. Meet your favourite comic book characters as you discover new ways of drawing, painting and printing for a future generation of superheroes.
October is Big Draw month in fifteen countries, and over 200,000 people take part every year. Hundreds of new and enjoyable drawing activities connect people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists - and each other. These events are for those who love to draw, and those who think they can't.
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.
