Appalachian State University's Arts Management Organization (AMO) and the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts (TCVA) Community Outreach Program are working together to present the Annual Spring Draw-a-thon.
The Spring Draw-a-thon is a free campus and community event that celebrates and promotes drawing, creativity, spontaneity and artistic collaboration. Students, professors and local artists (of all levels and ages) are invited to gather at TCVA, classroom 3200 to draw from life models during an all day event with the goal of creating a casual, fun atmosphere that is open to the curious novice, the devoted expert and every level in between. Participants are invited to be involved in the entire event or drop in as their schedule allows.
Attendees will have the option of drawing from live models (who will pose in rotation throughout the event) or working on personal sketches and drawing projects of their own designs. This event will include a special model session that will be "all audience friendly" with costumed models and a portrait drawing session on Saturday afternoon from 1 - 3 p.m. A complete schedule can be found below.
To further promote and celebrate the vibrancy of our artistic community, these drawings will be put on temporary display in Appalachian State University's Department of Art in Wey Hall.
All times are Saturday, April 28, 2012.
