The Big Draw

We are delighted to be taking part in this year’s Big Draw Festival.

During October, we have a range of opportunities for schools, colleges, and individuals to take part in creative activities delivered by our Creative Workshops Tutors and UCA Ambassadors. These include:

  • 10 October: UCA Campus group visits
  • October half term (22 – 26 October): Holiday Masterclasses

Our aim with the Big Draw is to give students and school groups an opportunity to use facilities and skills that they might not otherwise have access to. Activities are interactive and designed to be fun and enjoyable, in line with the Big Draw Theme for 2018, Play. 

Activities are available across all four UCA campuses: Canterbury, Epsom, Farnham or Rochester.

Opportunities for individual students

During October half term (22-26 October 2018) a range of Creative Masterclasses are available across UCA's four creative campuses. An opportunity to explore your favourite disciplne, develop your creative practice and expand your portfolio of work. 

Masterclasses are open to students aged 13-18 and include the opportunity to achieve the Discover Arts Award.
