November 12-13 at the Old Iron Works – Located at 612 Piety Street (New Location!!!)
This year it is important that you back our Draw-a-thon kickstarter Campaign! Draw-a-thon is an expensive enterprise and it won’t be possible this year without generous support from folks like you! Everything for the event is provided for free to the public and with a new location we have new walls to build, temporary lighting to install, and heaters to run – not to mention all of the supplies: pencils, pens, paint, paper, scissors, glue, and drawing pads that are all provided for free to the community. With these tight times we’ve seen our typical sources of funding sliced in half this year! Rather than scaling back and simply making due, we’re asking for your support of any amount so that we can present to you an even bigger and better event in our new home at the Old Ironworks. So please pledge today! Donate a dollar. Donate fifty dollars. Anything helps! Click here to visit our kickstarter.
