The Big Draw art event

Over 100 students participated in The Big Draw lunchtime event on Monday 13 November. This is a national event held across schools, museums, libraries and other spaces to encourage children to get creative in mark making and experiment with ways of drawing that are not simply putting pencil to paper.

From ‘drawing bugs’ where felt tip pens were moved around a sheet of paper by a tiny motorised ‘bug’, to wire portraits, sand drawing and a landscape made from brightly coloured electrical tape, there were a multitude of ways to draw. A steady buzz of excited voices filled the Science Atrium as girls from all year groups worked together to create fun and unusual pieces of art.
