Drawing promoted as a key design tool

The Campaign for Drawing is hosting a free professional development day at the Royal Academy of Engineering on Friday in a bid to encourage architects, engineers and planners to draw more

The purpose of this day is to share information about The Campaign for Drawing and examples of drawing in action in construction, schools, higher education and community settings and to help to shape a new publication: Drawing: A Tool for Design

The Campaign for Drawing’s aim is for drawing to be widely understood as a vital tool for thinking, creativity, communication and taking action. This day will consider how to extend the ways professionals use drawing in their practice to engage students and others in the design process.

Participants will be invited to share with the Campaign some of the drawings that they do in the course of their work. These will form the basis for Drawing: A Tool for Design, a new book which will show how these professions use drawing. The book will be of use in schools and further education to promote drawing across the curriculum, as well as in community settings to support participation in the design process.
