Swanson's Middle School's ART STAR (homeroom) is organizing “The Big Draw” in STAR during the week of October 26th. Each STAR will receive an envelope of alphabet letters for the students to draw, doodle or decorate using any type of drawing materials. The students will draw each day from 7:50-8:10am. At the end of the week, the ART STAR will collect all of the letters. Then, the ART STAR will collage the letters together to create phrases that will be laminated and displayed in Swanson's hallways.
"The Big Draw" is the World's Biggest Drawing Festival involving twenty-six countries, with 414,000 people attending over 1800 events by 1000+ organizers. The Big Draw 2015 takes place October 1st-31st. The Theme is Every Drawing Tells a Story. Http://isuu.com/thebigdraw/docs/everydrawingtellsastory
