Draw Down Vancouver is an annual hands-on drawing event that happens across the city in celebration of drawing. It challenges preconceptions about drawing and works to connect everyone with the making of art. This year Vancouver Draw Down is happening on Saturday, June 14th in multiple venues across Vancouver, Canada.
This year the Greay along with Satellite Gallery has decided to partake in the festivities by bringing drawing to the streets our selves. We’re going to spread out around the downtown area and even take a ride on the Seabus to let the busy people of the city to slow down for a minute and just draw.
In preparation for the event we decided to make a small video about Draw Down, so we spend the day filming in Robson Square and other places in Downtown Vancouver. We had tones of fun, plus we got to fool around with a giant pencil!
Stay tuned for the video release in the coming week!
