Located at the National Gallery of Art’s East Building, The Big Draw Festival promotes visual literacy and the universal language of drawing as a tool for learning, expression, and invention. The festival takes place on October 27th and 28th, and it makes a great way to spend a fall weekend.
The event will feature a Sketching Lab, live model sketching, in-gallery sessions with teaching artists, live music, and film screenings. The festival is entirely free and each program is first-come, first served. The museum-wide celebration of drawing is the world’s largest drawing festival and is a great way to enhance your own sketching skills. Check out the following schedule of events:
