Communicate Through Pictures

A whole month dedicated to drawing. If there were ever a time to sharpen your pencils, this is it. The Campaign for Drawing organisation has set up numerous events across the country, encouraging everyone to get creative. You don't have to be a good artist, just go along to an event, have fun, and draw. There will be workshops, classes, talks, and drop-in sessions for every age group.

Here's just a taste of some of the things going on this October:

Architectural Portraits

Ever wondered what you would look like as a building? Well, no, I can't say I have either, but still, now the thought has been implanted in my mind, I am quite intrigued. If you would like to sketch your architectural self-portrait, then on the 27th October, why not go to the Architecture Centre or Arnolfini in Bristol between 12pm-4pm?

Model Art

Models will dress up in quirky clothing for you to sketch still life drawings. Admission is 10 and you need to bring you're own materials. The even takes place at Artsite Ltd. in Wiltshire on the 13th October.

Design a Banknote

Open to all ages, anyone can attend the event at the Building of Bath Collection in Somerset to design their own currency and hang it on the money tree afterwards. The event takes place between 27th-31st October and is free to anyone residing in the area, otherwise it costs 4.


How do you like my drawing of Fred Flintstone?

Come and draw your own cartoon characters and storyboards at the Witham United Reformed Church in Essex. It is on the 31st October between 10.30am-2.30pm.


24 hours of non-stop drawing at the A-Side B-Side Gallery in London. From 1pm on the 20th October till 1pm on the 21st October there will be drawing activities led by different artists.

Spirited Bodies

A whole host of models will form a tableau scene to be interpreted and drawn by the public. Professional artists will be there to give you free tuition as you paint your masterpiece. The event will be held at Battersea Art Centre in Wandsworth on the 11th October between 11am-5pm.
