Two events in one day!

DRAWING MARATHON – Figure Drawing from 9 am to 6 pm; $30/person
DRAW & DISCOVER – Observational Drawing for families & friends from noon to 3 pm; $10/family

DCAD has had the privilege to host 11 DRAWING MARATHONS, created for participants to develop artistic vision, sharpen skills, and energize the studio experience through figure drawing.  This year, DCAD again invites the community to join us for nine hours of figure drawing in our newly renovated, 8,000+ square foot 2nd floor, which will be transformed into a figure drawing studio for the event.  Participants will draw alongside DCAD students, staff, and faculty and be inspired by artists of all experience levels. 

Drawing Marathon participants should bring their own drawing or painting supplies and be prepared to be amazed by this special drawing experience which has attracted hundreds of artists from the mid-Atlantic region. 

New for 2016, we are excited to expand our Marathon to include a kid-friendly drawing event, DRAW & DISCOVER, open to families and friends.  Join us for entertainment, discussion, and observational drawing in the Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery from noon until 3 pm.  Participants may draw talented DCAD musicians, quirky and interesting still life set-ups, or each other, either as a group or individually.  All supplies will be provided; children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Seating is limited; advanced registration is highly recommended.
