OCA – The Big Draw

Welcome to the Open College of the Arts (OCA) Big Draw activity.

Welcome to the Open College of the Arts and the Big Draw 2023 activity supported by the OCA Student Association. This short online course encourages participants to discover drawing, using our senses to evoke feelings of being alive and experiencing the visual world around us. Senses are an integral part of our existence and being. Through these exercises we hope to inspire you to be inventive, creative and have a visual voice. We will also be hosting an online session on Wednesday 18 October to explore our theme this year of ‘the senses’. We will be using drawing to communally explore possibilities in this exciting event.

Participants will need to visit learn.oca.ac.uk and click on the Big Draw, then create a new OCA account to access. OCA students can log in using their OCA email address.

The Big Draw festival runs from 1 – 31 October every year, however OCA’s Big Draw activity will remain open, giving you the opportunity to drop in to be creative as many times as you like, and if you enjoyed it, invite your friends, or even take on our other courses below.

Please share your work across social media using the hashtag #WeAreOCA and see what others are creating!
