LET'S get drawing! That's the plea from organisers of a campaign to get people to express their artistic talent.
Hundreds of events will be held up and down the country.
Huddersfield people will get their chance to pick up a pencil at the town centre art gallery on October 16.
The annual Big Draw is being held for the fourth time. It is organised by the Campaign for Drawing, launched by the Guild of St George to celebrate its founder, John Ruskin, the Victorian art critic and social reformer.
Artists will be at Huddersfield Art Gallery to help visitors create drawings. All age groups will be welcome at the free event, running between 1pm and 4pm.
A Big Draw spokes- woman said: "John Ruskin wanted to get everyone drawing, which is what the campaign is trying to do today.
"Drawing is as basic a skill as reading and writing. It helps us think and express ourselves and remember our experiences."
The Yorkshire Sculpture Park at West Bretton is holding two Big Draw events, between 11am and 4pm on October 16 and 17, when artists and park staff will help to create artwork. The fee is £1.
