A BIG DRAW event inspired by the illustrations of Quentin Blake.
A magical afternoon of drawing taking inspiration from the illustrations of Quentin Blake in our Seven Kinds of Magic exhibition.
Try your hand at creating masterpieces using Magic Pencils, as used by Blake in his book Angel Pavement, and join in with a music workshop led by Birmingham Conservatoire, who will make your drawings come alive with a variety of instruments and sounds, as you create a magical pavement mural! www.thebigdraw.org
Until 10 December 2017
This exhibition comprises original illustrations by Quentin Blake for 7 books in which magic appears in different forms, including The Witches by Roald Dahl, shown alongside works from our Permanent Collection chosen by House of Illustration, in consultation with the artist, which link to each of the illustrated texts.
Seven Kinds of Magic was the inaugural exhibition in the Quentin Blake Gallery at House of Illustration in London in 2016. House of Illustration is the UK’s only public gallery dedicated to the exhibition and promotion of illustration, founded by Blake in 2014.
