Big Draw Summary

Last week BSB held its first ever Big Draw week as part of the UK’s Campaign for Drawing initiative. The Big Draw aims to get people using their imagination, drawing collaboratively and highlight the importance of Art and creativity in education. There were a whole range of events taking place throughout the week with different departments and year groups all highlighting the creative ways drawing is relevant to their curriculum with specific drawing activities and events.

Primary Big Draw Day 29th October

Students from Years 3 to 6 were invited down to the foyer to create three 10 meter long collaborative drawings in marker pens. To get them started, they were given example imagery which included different techniques for creating a variety of marks and shape. All of the students were fully engaged in the activity and worked extremely well together to create effective final outcomes. It was great to see students taking pride in the section of work they completed and respectively adding to each other’s work.

Secondary Big Draw Day 30th October

On Secondary Big Draw Day students from Years 7 to 10 worked in the foyer on three canvases and a 10 meter roll of paper. As a starting point, one canvas was set out to show the Beijing skyline with the remaining work inspired by images from Beijing and example imagery linked to theme “It’s our World”.  The Secondary school students produced some incredible outcomes showing great teamwork, precision and imagination.

Community Big Draw 1st November

On Saturday students, parents and staff of all ages and ability took part in our first community big draw event. The floor was transformed into a six by ten metre canvas where everyone worked together to produce a drawing of mammoth proportions! There was some superb talent on show and great collaboration between staff, parents and students.  This is truly experiencing the BSB family and school community in action!
