We’ve taken our Get Drawing campaign online so we can continue to share the joy and benefits of drawing, while focusing on the relationship between people and our environment and ecosystems for The Big Green Draw: A Climate of Change 2020.
These resources have been adapted so that you can make use of them in your home, garden, local park or outdoor space. They can be printed in colour or black and white, or if you don’t have access to a printer, grab some paper and use the online version for guidance.
