Every donation is vital to enabling our future work as a pioneering arts education charity.  


We are a very small charity with huge aspirations. We have created an international drawing festival that has involved over 3.5 million people around the world; established a platform for emerging artists; and, developed an innovative education programme to raise the profile of drawing as a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement.

We have an incredible team of dedicated part-time staff and volunteers but we need to raise substantial revenue to continue delivering an effective campaign for visual literacy. We believe in drawing to learn not learning to draw.

Your donation is essential to our ongoing success promoting visual literacy and the universal language of drawing, and we are very grateful for your support.
