A drawing festival for those in, and around, Andover.
Day 13 Theme:
Why not have a go at developing your drawing skills by drawing every day over a fortnight at the start of May 2022?
Join hundreds of others who will be picking up their pencils and pens (and all sorts of other things), and following the call of ‘Go Draw!’
Even though Go Draw fortnight has started it's not too late to join in - even if there are only s few days to go!
Just lay your hands on your Free Go Draw drawing booklet (or use your own), and each day draw a picture on the given theme - it's as simple as that!
Some questions that you might be asking:
I can’t draw, how do I join in?
Everyone can draw – perhaps not as well as they would like - but they can draw! Every day there will be tips, ideas, examples and inspiration to help you along the way! What ever you do dont think you are not good enough - you are!
What do I draw?
Each day will have a different theme, with some examples to help. These will be published daily on line, but you can draw whatever you want – just Go Draw!
What do I use to draw with?
You can use anything you like! Pencils, pens, crayons whatever you feel comfortable with! We always recommend that you draw in a drawing book (you don’t lose all those bits of paper). You can sign up for a completely free, limited edition, Go Draw drawing booklet, made exclusively for this event. See below for how to order one.
Who is Go Draw aimed at?
Absolutely everyone. Even the very young can make marks on paper and there is no top age limit to drawing... it really is something that anyone can take part in.
Do I need to let you know I am taking part?
No, you can just Go Draw!
But, it would be good to know. For those that signed up for limited edition free drawing booklet, they will get hints and encouragement directly into their inbox. There will be daily themes to help you on line on the website, and on Facebook. Don't forget to share your pictures on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #godrawandover
A really wonderful way of showing the world what you are up to, and to gain ideas and inspiration is to join the Go Draw Andover community by signing up to the Facebook page Go Draw Andover.
Do I have to draw every day?
It works better if you do! But we realise that sometimes life gets in the way of even the best intentions! Don’t worry … just Go Draw the next day!
