The Campaign for Drawing was launched in 2000 to encourage everyone, no matter what their age or background to draw. Every year, it holds numerous workshops in Britain and now worldwide, which encourage people to draw in many different media and styles. The campaign wants to demonstrate that drawing is not just a private hobby or profession, but can be a fun activity in groups. In its own words 'each Big Draw season shows how drawing can open our eyes to our environment and heritage, encouraging us to think, invent and communicate.' The Campaign was originally the concept of the Guild of St George who still own the Ruskin Collection. Today it is a successful charity in its own right. More information can be found at:
