The Vancouver Draw Down coming up June 9, 2012 and will celebrate drawing with activities all day long. With 27 free workshops at 18 locations, there is a full schedule of events to encourage Vancouverites young and old to “touch a pen to a piece of paper, and make a mark.”

vancouverdrawdownGather in an art gallery, museum, community centre, or on the street to doodle, sketch, create a font, add to a mural, and more. You don’t need to be a professional artist — everyone can draw. You can drop-in to the workshops and visit multiple sessions and venues throughout the whole day.

Just a few of the events: Humand & Animal Forms at the Museum of Anthropology, Circus! At Collage Collage, Drawing From Memory at Mountain View Cemetery, Community Portraits at Art Starts, and Drawing Across the Board.

There’s also a Daily Drawing Project leading up to the event if you would like to start drawing right away. One of the event sponsors, Vancouver is Awesome, has been profiling some Daily Draw Down participants like Billy Campbell, Jenny Kwan, and Mina Shum.

Vancouver Draw Down culminates with the kick off of Vancouver Drawn, an exhibition of drawings at local galleries from July 14 to August 4, 2012. Follow the Vancouver Draw Down on Facebook and Twitter for more information.
