Power Drawing is the professional development programme that underpins the Campaign for Drawing. It supports the work of teachers, cultural educators and others who use drawing in their work.
The programme promotes the use of drawing as a creative tool for developing skills of perception, thought, invention and action.
It strives to embed drawing as a medium for learning in educators’ practice in a variety of settings – in schools, museums, galleries, heritage sites and community spaces.
These case studies show development work supported by Power Drawing. We hope they provide inspiration.
Fifteen schools participated in Power Drawing: Active Learning, a year-long programme made in collaboration with ArtForms, Education Leeds. It resulted in a book of the same name, which shows how drawing can be used across the primary curriculum. Published by The Campaign for Drawing, and sponsored by ArtForms Leeds and Creativity, Culture and Education, this book is available from firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. 0845 4589911, price £5.50 (inc.
