Big News About the Big Draw!

Calling all doodlers! This October, the Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine is participating in The Big Draw, an international drawing festival that celebrates drawing in all its forms. Now in its fifteenth year, the Festival  attracts  hundreds of thousands of participants from all over the world, giving everyone a chance make art and connect with their community. The Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine is proud to be the only official Big Draw partner in the state of Maine this year.

To celebrate, we’ve scheduled a ton of fun, interactive drawing and art workshops and classes. We’re also welcoming three fantastic guest artists to our Artists in Residence Program during The Big Draw. Look for Johanna, Faith, and Emmeline as they create interactive, large scale works of art created by YOU! Children and families are encouraged to work together to create a seascape mural with Johanna, constellation art with Faith, and art based on your favorite things with Emmeline.
