Whether you join us in person or online, Vancouver Draw Down invites you to reconnect with the creative pleasure of drawing—pick up a pencil, mouse, crayon or paintbrush and declare, “I can draw!”
Now in its 6th year, Vancouver Draw Down is an annual celebration of drawing in everyday life that challenges preconceptions about drawing and works to reconnect everyone with the power and creative pleasure of making marks.
Vancouverites of all ages are invited to take part in hands-on drawing events, across the city in community centres, museums, art galleries, and on the street! Workshops, developed and led by professional artists, offer the opportunity to explore drawing in person and online. This day-long, city-wide celebration focuses on the process, pleasure and diversity of drawing, rather than on skill and technical ability.
Vancouver Draw Down 2015 takes place on Saturday, June 20 in venues across Vancouver, Canada.
The Vancouver Draw Down was inspired by The Big Draw, part of the Campaign for Drawing, an independent UK-based charity that raises the profile of drawing as a tool for thought, creativity, social, and cultural engagement.
