Draw-a-thon at Arts at Marks Garage
On February 5th [First Friday Art Walk], Arts at Marks Garage hosted a Draw- a- thon to raise funds for the Drawing and Painting Program. Sixty students volunteered their time for the event. Outside students were showcasing their talents by offering portrait drawing for a suggested donation of $5. Inside students and community members were offered the space to practice their life drawing skills. Special thanks to Christopher Kendrick-Stanford, HRH Fleur, and Thomas Galliato who volunteered their time modeling for the event.
With enough students on the wait list to fill two sections of Advanced Drawing I and Intermediate Life Drawing II, but not enough money to cover modeling costs,there was a goal of raising $834. Exceeding expectations, close to $1,500 was raised by the end of the night.
