The Big Draw

The Art department hosted the ‘Big Draw’ which was an exciting grand finale to Well-being Week with four pieces of paper stretching the length of the Big School hall. This event encouraged girls to take part, enjoy and consider the therapeutic aspects of drawing. Inspired by Art and Text, Music, Foreign Language, Objects and Butterflies, pupils were invited to experiment and explore creatively by drawing on a large scale with various materials and objects provided.

Pupils responded enthusiastically and worked confidently with the large scale through a variety of collaboration, individual and observation techniques. All year groups embraced the project and made it their own with many returning in their free time to add to their drawing or to photograph their contribution. It was lovely to see so many pupils absorbed in the process. Final outcomes will be framed and displayed around the School.
