Can’t draw, but still got something to say?
Humans learn to draw before they learn to speak and write. It’s a creative instinct as old as humanity. So why then, do so many of us end up later in life feeling like we can’t draw? That we don’t have the skills?
I Can’t Draw invites us to re-connect with our inbuilt ability to express ourselves and communicate through the making of marks. Not just with a pencil, but with anything and everything – cameras, light, movement, string, found objects, anything…
What is I Can't Draw?
This project isn’t a competition – it’s a celebration of what it is to be human and our talent to express ourselves beyond words. All of the work created in this national project will be exhibited online by Arts University Bournemouth in Summer 2021 and then celebrated at the BEAF Festival in Summer 2021.
