Hauser & Wirth Somerset invites families into the gallery for Family Saturdays on the first Saturday of every month. These free sessions offer families a unique experience of art, design and nature.
This special Family Saturday, in collaboration with The Big Draw, invites children and their families to take part in drawing activities that provide a direct interpretation of this years festival theme: ‘Living Lines: An Animated Big Draw Festival’. For as long as we’ve been able to draw we’ve been depicting motion; activities inspired by the current exhibition ‘Rita Ackermann. Turning Air Blue’ will invite families to join the world’s largest drawing festival and draw, doodle, sketch, paint or just make marks with meaning, as we celebrate the diverse language of drawing and appreciate the visual world around us.
The Big Draw is the world’s biggest drawing festival with thousands of drawing activities connecting people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists, designers, illustrators – and each other. The Big Draw annually involves 1000+ organisers on seven continents, engaging around 400,000 people in their theme ‘Living Lines’! The Big Draw 2017 takes place 1 – 31 October at various locations internationally.
For our Big Draw event we will run two sessions; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The sessions are aimed at families with children aged 6 – 14 years, however younger children are welcome if supervised by parents / carers.
This is a free event, however advanced booking is essential as there are limited places.
