National Drawing Day
Children of all ages are invited to simply draw, then submit their drawings to the National Children’s Gallery in three simple steps.
There are a number of drawing day events being organised locally but the kids do not need to be actually at a physical event to participate. They just need to draw wherever and whatever they like and then you can scan or photograph the artwork and share it with the world on www.childrensgallery.ie.
