Blurring The Big Draw: A fun free family drawing event at Goldsmiths

When: Saturday 23 October 2010, 11am - 4pm
Where: Great Hall, Richard Hoggart Building, Goldsmiths, University of London, New Cross, London SE14 6NW
Admission: FREE

As part the national Big Draw event, Goldsmiths, University of London will be inviting families to take part in ‘Blurring The Big Draw’ on Saturday 23 October from 11am – 4pm.

Goldsmiths’ Great Hall will host a wide range of creative activities and workshops ideal for children up to 14 years old. Visitors will be encouraged to take part in a variety of guided activities led by postgraduate trainee teachers from Goldsmiths making this free event a fun day out for the whole family.

The 2009 Big Draw event ‘Colour: The Big Draw’ was the biggest so far with more than 700 visitors. It was so successful that it won the prestigious Trailblazer Award prize in the Drawing Inspiration Awards.

The theme for the 2010 Big Draw event at Goldsmiths is ‘Blurring The Big Draw’, and it will emphasise the cross-curricular future of drawing. For the first time in Goldsmiths' Big Draw history, English PGCE students will team up with Art and Design PGCE students to design and run the event which aims to blur the boundaries of drawing and mark-making.

This year Goldsmiths’ Big Draw is partly sponsored by Aspire Aimhigher, the South East London partnership working to give young people in the area more opportunities to access further and higher education. The event is also supported by the Centre for Arts and Learning, a research centre at Goldsmiths dedicated to the practical and theoretical exploration of learning practices across the arts within diverse social and cultural contexts.
