Artists' Feedback
It was inspiring to see so many local people coming together to make art. It was also fascinating to see all the different styles and drawings they produced together. .... just by being there, and being curious, one boy learned about at least two new drawing techniques, and gained a bit of confidence. I also overheard a member of the public saying, “I don’t do this enough, I should do this every week!” She stretched as she got up to go, remarking how relaxed she felt after spending some time drawing. This certainly captures this year’s theme of well being, and I hope it might encourage her to continue making art in her spare time.  

There was a range of ages who all seemed to love the opportunity to sit down and doodle your worries away.  Often in life, we don’t have the time to draw, to concentrate on something not to make money, or to tick off something from your to-do list, but simply for the joy of it.  Drawing is one of those little pleasures.  I spoke to a parent at The Big Draw who had brought her children along, but ended up enjoying drawing for her own pleasure.
