Art for all in Guildford - get ready for the Big Draw

Published at 3:43pm 16th October 2017. (Updated at 3:44pm 16th October 2017)

The Big Draw, which runs until 29th October in Guildford, is part of a campaign to get the nation drawing. This year's theme is Living Lines  - which focuses on uniting pencils, pixels and people from across the globe to celebrate the universal language of drawing.

Cllr Nikki Nelson-Smith, Lead Councillor for Heritage and the Arts, says: "This wonderful festival, run in partnership with local arts practitioners and venues, offers inclusive opportunities for everyone, especially young people and those who do not normally have access to the arts.

"All ages, levels and abilities are welcome to take part in activities. There are free, high-quality and creative art workshops for all the family to take part in, and the chance to learn new skills. Workshops range from print making to shadow puppetry, to making small-scale concertina books. There is no limit to how many free Big Draw activities people can take part in, so why not try them all!"

Eleven Guildford venues are taking part in the event, which is organised locally by the Council's Arts Development team. Venues include Watts Gallery, G Live, The Boileroom, Yvonne Arnaud and Guildford Cathedral.

You can pick up a copy of the Guildford Borough's Big Draw 2017 leaflet from the Guildford Tourist Information Office in the High Street, Guildford, as well as other venues across the borough.
