2018 Drawing Marathon Program
Drawing Marathon is entering its 6th year. This began as an experimental one-year program and took on a life of its own after that. The purpose is to shake up our habitual working process and ways of thinking, to look for input from new surroundings and to enjoy the opportunity to talk ‘art’ to our hearts' content with other like-minded individuals. The basic format has been to simply gather in one another’s studios with drawing materials and no theme, just whatever method each individual artist chooses. This year we have decided to experiment a bit with themes.
Each month is hosted by a different artist in her studio. Due to variations in studio sizes, the host will determine the number of spaces available for each session.
To participate, email Barb Rehg (firstname.lastname@example.org) the day/days you want to attend. (You may attend more than one). Once each session has reached capacity, additional people will be put on the waiting list in case of cancellations.
How it works
Each participant brings her own materials. You may bring whatever food and drink you want for the lunch break, or go out for lunch. The process is very informal and you are not required to finish any piece. : )
Drawing Marathon usually runs from 10:30 to 3pm. Some sessions are on weekends and others may be during the week. Most Drawing Marathons are one day only, except the multi-day event held annually at Barb Rehg’s studio.
