The big draw

Due to Covid, The Big Draw has now been postponed and we hope to restart soon.

We’re always encouraging our residents to embrace their creative streak – and what better creative medium than painting!

October is Big Draw month in twenty countries and on five continents. Launched in 2000, this annual initiative has grown from 180 events in the UK to over 1500 worldwide. The campaign aims to use drawing to connect people with museum and gallery collections, urban and rural spaces – and the wider community – in new and enjoyable ways.


Every Big Draw season offers unlimited scope for those who love to draw and those who think they can’t.

For the last four years we have participated in the Big Draw – full details can be found here at Campaign for Drawing

Classic paintings were recreated at Spring Grove, Spring Lane and Springview. Individual squares were painted by residents, families, visitors and staff and the results are on show in each home.
