The Big Draw L.A.

The Big Draw L.A.

Sunday, October 27, 2013 – 11:30am to 6:00 pm

October is Big Draw month in fifteen countries, and over 200,000 people take part every year. Hundreds of new and enjoyable drawing activities connect people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists – and each other. These events are for those who love to draw, and those who think they can’t.

Since its launch in 2000, The Big Draw has successfully supported the Campaign for Drawing’s aims by encouraging everyone to draw. Big Draw events highlight the power of drawing to help people see, think, invent and take action.

Eighth Day Art’s event is inspired by the 2013 theme of Draw Tomorrow.

Participants will recieve a pre-made “canvas” with 3 human figures and will draw their present selves and the future selves they envision. The third figure is where the twist comes in – cards will be given with “what if” scenarios on them and participants will re-imagine their future based on that idea. Artists are also welcome to draw their own three figures.

There will be:

– Live Music –  Food & Drink – Raffles –

Participants are welcome to bring their own art medium and other supplies of choice – such as photographs, but there will be ample supplies on hand – brushes, paints, colored pencils and all sorts of found medium with which  to experiment.

The finished works will be photographed and the originals will hang in the gallery for the month of November.

The event is free and all ages are welcome.
