The Big Draw’s stated aim is to raise the profile of drawing as a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement, seeing drawing not only in terms of its artistic merits, but as a useful basic human skill in every day life.
The University has a proud history of artistic endeavour thanks in no small part to the sterling work of the staff and students of the School of the Arts. Indeed they have their own research journal, TRACEY – Drawing and Visualising Research, which is devoted to the study of the drawing art form.
Don’t forget that we have masses of books on the subject as well, including books by and about famous artists within the medium, as well as books that can teach you all about how to draw. Among our many art databases, you may also find ARTBibliographies Modern a very useful resource too.
