DRAWING ACTION, The Campaign for Drawing Associate
18 Professionals working in the Arts who have been chosen to become Associates of The Champaign for Drawing.
These 18 cover the nine regions in England with myself and Helen Ackroyd, Art Education and Outreach Officer at Rufford Abbey Country Park, as the representatives for the East Midlands.
The aim of the associates is to develop and support the use of drawing in our area, our first role is to contribute case studies documenting how we use drawing in our own practice and with those we work with. This will document the breadth of activity to which drawing is a relevant and useful tool. We will also be working to find out what support and training is needed in our area to help, inspire and encourage everyone to get drawing.
At present I can offer
Creative workshops using drawing as a tool for thinking, seeing and planning.
General advice on setting up and running your own Big Draw event.
I will also be offering training for organisations and individuals who are interested in putting on a Big Draw Event. More details to follow.
