A month of drawing with a "Climate of Change" theme! The Big Green Drawing Challenge - 31 days of climate change themed drawing from the 1st-31st October 2020!​

Doors closing soon! Sign up before 12 noon on Tuesday 29th Sept 2020 to secure your place!

Making time for drawing is hard when faced with the demands of daily life. We crave more time for creativity in this fast paced world because it brings joy and moment stillness. And then there's the huge issue of climate change that we're all facing and we want to "do our bit" for the environment but changing habits isn't easy. 

One thing is clear - we can't make the changes to our lifestyles that are necessary not only to improve our sense of wellbeing and levels of creativity but also to curb the destruction of the planet, alone.

This challenge is for people who want to draw more, not only improve their drawing skills but to deepen their relationship with themselves and with nature through drawing daily but know that they need the accountability and motivation that comes with taking part in a challenge and being part of a group of people striving for the same goal in order to do so.​

This challenge is part of The Big Green Draw - Climate of Change - celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Big Draw Festival.

What people say:

"I would recommend this challenge for anybody! I have become confident and more relaxed with drawing and painting and have finally become the artist I've always wanted to be, making sketches everyday from beautiful intriguing things I see and then using them in my paintings and designs." Julia Bevan

“The drawing challenge and the guidance from Marigold gave me something to look forward to everyday. It allowed me to improve my drawing skills and to see it as a craft that you have to work on. The community aspect of the challenge is so inspiring and I tried so many things thanks to that. Highly recommend!” Floriane-Marielle Job

“The drawing challenge helped me get back into drawing and I got inspired by other people's work to use different media and styles. It's a friendly and supportive community that gives me the confidence to try new things and share work. Thank you Marigold for organising it and keeping us going!” 
 Emmy Pham
