The Big Draw: Schools Event

  • Thu 10 October 2019
  • 10 am – 3 pm

Join Hauser & Wirth Somerset for an event open to over 100 school children to celebrate The Big Draw. Early Years to Primary Schools Session: 10 am – 12 pm Secondary Schools Session: 1 – 3 pm The Big Draw is the world’s largest drawing festival with the goal of promoting visual literacy and art education. The annual event enables schools, libraries, museums, artists groups, local councils and many more centres to host drawing activities, connecting people of all ages with art, design, and each other. The Big Draw annually involves 1000+ organisers on seven continents, engaging around 400,000 people. In response to this year’s festival theme ‘Drawn to Life’ and the exhibition ‘David Smith. Field Work’, we will be making experimental drawings and examine some of the ways in which performance can be both a physical activity and a subject matter. Hauser & Wirth Somerset was awarded ‘The Museums & Galleries Award’ in the international Big Draw Festival Awards 2018. Places are limited to 25 pupils per school. To book a place, please email education@hauserwirth.com or call +44 (0) 1749 814 060.
