Make Your Mark in the Park! by The Big Draw LA

Join Ryman Arts, the Museums at Exposition Park and USC on a Make Your Mark in the Park activity. You will help create a continuous drawing that winds its way around the Park, drawing the exciting activities and beautiful gardens before you. Teen artists will be there to help you "make your mark", no experience required. Help us create the longest drawing of an afternoon in the Park! Later, the long collaborative drawing will be photographed and will become a scrolling panorama on the web.

About The Big Draw LA

The Big Draw LA is a city-wide celebration of the act of drawing.

Why not get young people, artists, seniors, scientists, and teens drawing together? In honor of its 20th anniversary, Ryman Arts is partnering with Los Angeles museums and other organizations to launch the first annual The Big Draw LA. Together, Los Angelenos will expand the boundaries of drawing, experimenting not only with pencils, paint, charcoal, and digital imagery, but also with sand, clay, choreographed movement, vapor trailsanything that makes a mark! Participation is open to all, and organizations of all sizes and kinds, from established institutions to small groups, are invited to sponsor, organize, or host an event during the month of October.

Drawing is a universal language, connecting generations, cultures, and communities. Children draw to make sense of the world before they learn to write. Yet most adults, given a pencil, claim: I cant draw! The Big Draw aims to remove this barrier and create opportunities for people of all ages to discover that drawing can make us SEE, THINK, and INVENT. The Big Draw L.A. will be the first event of its kind to take place on the West Coast and is inspired by the wildly popular Big Draw in London.
The Big Draw LA is committed to promoting inclusiveness and offering a diversity of drawing experiences. 

Presenting organizations will register events open to the public on-line at
