From Saturday, April 27, 2019 -  12:00pm

On April 27th, The Hilltown Draw-Around is back for a 5th year of 12 hours full of drawing, doodling, coloring, mark-making fun! The Art Garden invites everyone to this unusual community event and pay-what-you-can fundraiser for the ARTeens program, an after school program for area teens. 

Once again we will cover the Cowell Gym in Shelburne Falls with paper and open the doors from 12 noon until midnight for everyone to draw wherever they want. This year’s event will see the return of annual favorites like the giant floor mandala that people can color in and add to, a 3-D coloring experience, text corner, community portrait wall, plexiglas portrait drawing station, and the human-powered drawing machine - what will it look like this year? As always we will be adding in new prompts and activities to inspire everyone to create and play together.  

Come for an hour, or stay for the entire 12. Enjoy coloring with friends or drawing on your own, or take part in a mini drawing workshop. Listen to local musicians throughout the day and enjoy delicious foods for sale at our Cowell Cafe. This unique art party is fun for all ages and abilities!

Location The Cowell Gym, 51 Maple St. Shelburne Falls
