What is drawing?

DRAWING is a programme of exhibitions and events across the North East of England which aims to examine and celebrate drawing in art and design and also in the everyday areas of science, technology and engineering.

DRAWING is a collaboration between many of the region’s universities as well as galleries (private and public) museums and other venues and organisations.

On this website you will find information about the full programme including all exhibitions, workshops, talks and other events.

We also intend to use this website as a place for people to find out more about drawing as a medium and to hopefully get involved in drawing themselves through various public projects and by downloading our app.

In this section we have a series of articles written by people from all walks of life who use drawing in their work or in their art and creative process. Please use the ‘using drawing’ dropdown from this page the main menu.
