As part the national Big Draw campaign, families are invited to take part in ‘Outlines: The Big Draw at Goldsmiths’ led by PGCE Art & Design and BA (Hons) Education, Culture & Society students on Saturday 27 October from 11am – 4pm.
This year’s event promises to build on last year’s success, which saw children explore a treasure island as well as help ‘shipwrecked’ PGCE students make rafts and build shelters. Other activities included mapping their journey around the hall with poetry and stories – getting their passport stamped as they went – and helping to create an exciting new civilisation out of cardboard boxes.
The free annual family event – which is ideal for children aged 3 to 13 years old – has continued to grow in popularity since Goldsmiths hosted its first Big Draw in 2006, winning several Campaign For Drawing awards along the way.
One parent who visited the 2011 event said: “It was amazing – my little one loved it, thank you so much! The hall was incredible – like going into another world. There are a lot of very talented students at Goldsmiths”
