I would rather teach drawing that my pupils may learn to love nature, than teach them looking at nature that they may learn to draw.

2010 Ruskin-BIGDRAW- Info & Events
How to Participate:

Discover drawing as a great learnable medium to explore, express, and observe —and try out new experiences in drawing as both an enjoyable public activity and an individual pursuit. Drawing workshops, classes and activities are being scheduled and hosted throughout the month of October by community organizations, museums, libraries, schools and clubs.

 The annual BIG DRAW-Ruskin began in 2008 to mark the 100th anniversary of Ruskin FL as a community whose founders were influenced by the writings and philosophy of John Ruskin.  It is inspired by and linked to the international Campaign for Drawing first initiated in Great Britain to honor John Ruskin.  (www.campaignfordrawing.org)

 THE BIG DRAW-Ruskin celebrates the vision of John Ruskin who famously believed in drawing as a tool for understanding and knowledge and promoted the importance of the arts in education and community life.
