The Big Draw Event at Kings College, La Moraleja
Kings College School, La Moraleja
Mon 30 Oct 10am to 4pm
This year Kings College, La Moraleja will be talking part in the worldwide drawing festival The Big Draw. We invite you to join us on the 30th of October to promote the universal language of drawing as a tool for learning, expression and invention. From 1-31 October, every year, The Big Draw Festival encourages people of all ages, levels and abilities to take part in drawing activities. Anyone can get involved. The Big Draw Festival is for everyone - we welcome those who love drawing to those who think they can't!

The Big Draw aims to get everyone drawing. When we draw, we take an opportunity to slow down, and to appreciate how the visual world works. At Kings College, la Moraleja, we aim to promote drawing as a tool for developing visual literacy. By developing this skill we gain a deeper understanding of our surroundings and learn a truly universal language. By fostering a greater understanding of what drawing can mean, and by increasing awareness and engagement, we believe many more people can benefit from it as a powerful tool for invention, for communicating complex concepts, and for its power to engage people.

'Visual literacy is the ability to interpret, negotiate, and make meaning from information presented in the form of an image... Visual literacy is based on the idea that pictures can be “read” and that meaning can be communicated through a process of reading.'

The Big Draw Patron Quentin Blake.

On the 30th of October, we invite you to take part in a range of drawing workshops designed to illustrate this year's Big Draw theme ‘Living Lines’. Open to a wide range of interpretations, the theme is designed to get your marks moving! Whether you decide to get animated, theatrical, illusionary, technical or messy we can't wait to see what you have up your sleeves...
