Thanksgiving Virtual Drawing Marathon

Nov 24, 2020; 6:30 - 8:15pm
A collection of brown, red and yellow leaves on a white background with one brown leaf at the center with the words "thank you" written on it.

Drawing from knowledge, memory and imagination as reference, participants will create a drawing per minute as a loosening-up exercise. The running theme of the session is “all that we are grateful for.”


Supplies: 100 sheets of paper (any size), drawing materials that allow for quick, loose lines; consider ink, oil stick and/or soft graphite pencils.


This event is co-sponsored by SVA’s Division of Continuing Education and BFA Visual and Critical Studies.
