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 event, in collaboration with THE BIG DRAW, invites children and their families to take part in drawing activities where we will provide a direct interpretation of this year’s Big Draw theme: Every Drawing Tells A Story. Families are invited to join the world’s biggest drawing festival. 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 2014 Big Draw involved twenty-six countries, with 414,000 people attending over 1800 events by 1000+ organisers. The Big Draw 2015 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 in order to avoid disappointment advanced booking is recommended +44 1749 81 4060.
Please arrive at reception at 10 am or 2 pm and ensure you are dressed appropriately for exploring the landscape.
