The Drawing Research Network

Campaign for Drawing

The Campaign for Drawing was inspired by the great Victorian writer and visionary, John Ruskin. His mission was not to teach people to draw, but how to see.

Drawing can develop skills of perception, communication and invention transferable to any subject and helpful in a variety of educational settings.
