Ready. Set. Draw! The world’s largest drawing festival is coming to Toronto History Museums. The free event is open to all-ages and abilities and welcomes everyone who loves to draw to make a mark on their city.

Bring your own paints, pencils, and crayons or use those provided to create your own masterpiece. Get inspired by the sites' architecture, artefacts and gardens or participate in a collaborative art project.

The Big Draw Festival has attracted more than four million people worldwide to get out and draw. This year's theme, Drawn To Life: Creativity and Wellbeing, encourages conversations around the pivotal role of creativity on one's health and wellness.

This is the first time all 10 Toronto History Museums partner with The Big Draw UK and Culture Days. The Big Draw Festival Toronto 2019 is supported by the British Council.
