Join us on October 17th from 11am – 3pm at the Kansas City, Kansas Public Library for The Big Draw.
The Big Draw is the world’s largest drawing festival. It started in England with one day in October 2000 and has grown to include twenty-six countries, with 414,000 people attending over 1,800 events by more than 1,000 organizers. This year’s festival takes place internationally from October 1-31 with the theme Every Drawing Tells A Story. Here is the international event’s website.
The Kansas City, Kansas Public Library is organizing a Big Draw for Kansas City, Kansas at the South branch library on October 17th, 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. This free community event is open to everyone regardless of drawing experience. We want to encourage each participant to explore their creativity through drawing. Kansas City artists Robin Case and Monique Salazar will lead a group mural project and create sidewalk chalk drawings in front of the library. The goal is for everyone attending to have fun and be creative. Representatives from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art will also be there to lead an art activity and to provide information about the museum’s programs and events.
