An idea borrowed from the New Orleans Draw-A-Thon, the Hilltown Draw-Around is 12 hours of community connections, creative risk taking, and ephemeral whimsy.
We cover the floor and walls of the Cowell Gym with repurposed paper and provide all sorts of mark making devices, prompts, and inspirations then invite everyone in to collaborate on an always surprising, slightly chaotic, and very temporary public art installation.
We've rolled out over 8,000 square feet of repurposed paper for our community to draw on, and about a mile of blue tape to secure it.
Over 500 people each year come from near and far to collaborate and draw with each other!
From a mysterious drawing request booth, to a 3D coloring book, at the Draw Around, there's something for everyone!
Thanks to the support of the community, we've been able to provide stipends to over 60 local artists and musicians for workshops and concerts throughout the day.
