The Big Draw 2017

As part of this year's Big Draw national event, we hosted a programme of 11 free creative workshops for all the family during October.

The event is celebrated in our borough every year and is part of the hugely successful initiative The Big Draw which has become the world's largest drawing festival.

Run in partnership with local arts practitioners and venues, the Big Draw workshops were aimed at letting all ages explore new and creative ideas.

Big Draw 2017 theme

The theme for 2017 was Living Lines, designed to get your marks moving.

From cave men to the big screen and everything in between, the theme was aimed at uniting pixels, pencils and people from across the globe to celebrate the universal language of drawing.

Take a look at some of the results of the events on our Big Draw Instagram account: #guildfordbigdraw2017.

You can also see some inspiring Big Draw videos on the The Big Draw website.
