ABOUT THE BIG DRAW LA
The Big Draw LA, a month-long initiative presented by Ryman Arts, is part of the international drawing celebration The Big Draw taking place in countries around the world in October. Join Ryman Arts and a consortium of Southern California’s community organizations for the seventh year of this initiative. The Big Draw LA creates participatory opportunities for people of all ages to have fun and discover that drawing inspires creative thinking and helps us communicate with others. After launching the inaugural The Big Draw LA in 2010, participation has more than doubled with 10,000+ Southern Californians taking part during the month. Organizations are invited to sponsor, organize, or host a The Big Draw LA event.
