London Drawing features in The Why Factor on the BBC World Service:
The Why Factor- Nudity 

Great article in You Magazine featuring the October edition of The Drawing Theatre in collaboration with Spirited Bodies at BAC. Really interesting stories from the models point of view; why they decided to take part, their experience of the event and their sense of empowerment as a result

All about The Drawing Theatre- an article by Cynthia Barlow Marrs in Glow Magazine.

We are award winning!! Our Drawing Theatre event at Watford Palace Theatre as part of our Big Draw events last October has been selected as a Highly Commended entry for the Drawing Inspiration Awards 2011. Competing with an unprecedented number of entries from across the country this is definitely a brilliant achievement.
