NATIONAL Trust property Erddig, near Wrexham, is joining more than 1,000 venues across the country taking part in the ninth Big Draw.
The Big Draw proves drawing can be an enjoyable public activity as well as a private passion.
It was inspired by the visionary Victorian artist and writer, John Ruskin.
His mission was not only to teach people how to draw, but how to see.
An educational charity, the campaign demonstrates drawing is a life skill, an essential tool for thinking, inventing and communicating.
A spokesman said: “Erddig is playing its part in allowing young people to create art. Quite simply, Erddig will give you a blank canvas, you just add the colour.
“There will be a number of fun activities you can join in with. Illustrator and cartoonist Dai Owen will be there to help bring your art to life.
“You could try some body art with our expert body painter who will guide you through the styles of Aboriginal and African artists.
“You can also create art with different textures with materials picked from the gardens of Erddig. Then you can help us build the largest and most colourful paper chain.”
He added: “At the end of it all, your completed artwork can join the Big Draw Gallery that will be on show until Christmas. And for one lucky artist, there is the chance to have their work on permanent display at Erddig.
“One amazing piece of art will be selected and hung for all to see forever.”
The Big Draw Weekend takes place at Erddig on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm and normal admission prices will apply.
