Last week the Art Department at BSB organised its second ever Big Draw Week.
After the success of last year, the large paper canvases were once again rolled out onto the foyer floor on three separate occasions with over 800 students, parents and teachers all collaborating over the week. This year’s theme from the Campaign for Drawing was 'Every Drawing tells a Story'. In response to this BSB gave their Big Draw activities a Space theme which clearly captured the imagination of our students!
The week began with Secondary School students who worked on a large strip on paper based on the theme of outer space. Primary students then used this as inspiration for their own Big Draw Day. It was great to hear that teachers and students are really getting into the spirit of the week with their own classroom activities. This included mini Big Draw activities in Early Years and a painted ceiling in Mr Hartland's English class!
Then on the day of The Community Big Draw last Saturday, the foyer was a buzz of creativity with people of all ages making their mark on a huge piece of paper 8 metres by 10 metres.
It was another fantastic and busy week of drawing which has resulted in another range of outstanding, large scale, collaborative artwork.
