A Local Portrait Gallery: workshops for people from the neighborhood and live portrait drawing by professional artists from the neighborhood Located amidst a diverse neighborhood in Amsterdam West called De Baarsjes, The Big Draw in De Baarsjes invites residents and visitors alike to step into the limelight by sitting for their own portraits drawn by local artists, or taking up a pencil or brush to make a portrait of their neighbor or beloved one in a workshop.

In addition to the central theme of local portraits, we will also pay attention to sustainability. Used paper, cardboard and cans will serve as worthy material for both the portraits and the frames in order to share some surprising and inspiring possibilities for using what is ordinarily seen as waste.

All portraits will be exhibited on the spot in a local portrait gallery. It is a weekend full of drawing activity in the former gym hall -now a café - of a school built in 1925, that was recently renovated, a beautiful example of Amsterdam School style architecture.
