    I am in Sweden, a bit of an older student the the usual and just now doing everything I can to become an art teacher! Love exploring with pictures. They don’t have to be drawn, at the moment I am loving everything to do with land art especially stacking stones and leaving them everywhere!

    Hi – what great ideas to inspire drawing, and fun too! I am starting an after school art club this week for KS1 children, and I plan to encourage them to Draw with Stuff! I thought we’d do it over 3 or 4 sessions and see what develops. I’ll upload some photos as and when, if that’s ok. Not sure about making it an official Big Draw event as it’s an ongoing club?

      That fine – it doesn’t have to be an official big draw event. Look forward to seeing your drawings and good luck!

    […] OCA tutor Angela Rogers has a three dimensional drawing in The Big Draw (an annual national drawing event run by the Campaign for Drawing to get everyone drawing). AccessArt is doing a Big Draw online. It’s here where Angela’s work is featured. What do you think of drawing with such a broad range of materials? When does drawing cease to be drawing and become sculpture? Does it matter? /drawing-with-stuff-the-big-draw-online-with-accessart/ […]

    Hi, some children from Bradfield Dungworth Primary School have been making drawings with a limited range of “stuff”, in our first art club session for Years 1-3 last week.
    They had free choice of the materials, some selecting one only, then adding another if they felt they needed to. The interesting thing was that an object was placed on each table to “draw”, but every child chose rather to let the properties of the materials feed their imagination, some making up a whole narrative based on their drawings. It was a fast, furious and fun session!
    They used the materials whole, or cut or broke them up. They bent them, coiled them, or twirled them. The drawings are temporary, in as much as the materials are not glued in place like collage. This was to alleviate the “preciousness” sometimes placed on drawings. Each child’s piece was photographed however, and they were given a copy to share and talk about. Each child gave their own work a title and explanation, sometimes helped by others. Some of them are uploaded onto the Drawing with Stuff Gallery.
    Next week, they may use them as a starting point to alter or develop further, using different drawing media.

      I apologise if I uploaded too many! I had to choose from 22 drawings! By the way the ‘Man with Curly Orange Hair’ has somehow been turned 90 degrees.

        You can never upload too many!

      Hi Miranda – thanks so much for uploading and pls pass on our thanks to the children – they (and you) did a great job! I love that it was “fast furious and fun!”

      (On a personal note it made me so happy to see the school name – I grew up just a couple of miles from there! Brings back lovely memories and so nice to know the children joined in.)

      Many thanks
