There were queues at the opening of the 2019 Big Draw in The Biggin Hall today with all ages from tots to teenagers and seniors busy making pictures together.
The Big Draw is a National Festival of Drawing which takes place each year promoting drawing as a key skill that is important not only for the arts but also for subjects like engineering, maths, science and design. The theme of the Festival this year is “Drawn to Life” which recognises that drawing and being creative can help promote well being and enable people to make positive changes in their lives.
Councillors Brivio, Lamoon, Rix and Sancha supported the Festival in Dover with a total grant of £375 from their Councillor Ward Grant allocations to the organisers Dover Arts Development working with Dover Big Local Art31 Group
