DraW TiL YoU DroP!: A joint benefit for the Arts Council of Mendocino County and the Willits Center for the Arts
Contact: Elizabeth Raybee
Draw = Make Art in this event...anything without fumes, noise &/or flying objects that might disturb your neighbors will work...Paint, Crochet, Collage, Sew, Felt, Clay...or some variety thereof.
The space is limited – so let lead artist and community organizer extraordinaire Elizabeth Raybee know if you’d like to join in & she will send you sponsor sheets & any other details you’ll need.
We’ll start "ArTing" at 10 am, Saturday morning, April 25th upstairs at Willits Center for the Arts. All meals, lots of snacks & drinks will be provided while you work! Great live music by several local musicians will happen at various times throughout the day & night.
What do PARTICIPATING ARTISTS need to DO????
Sign up people to pledge (either per-hour or lump sum) to donate as your sponsor. It’s easy - Just carry your sign-up sheet with you & talk with excitement about your art-making plans &/or announce it on Facebook or send an email to your friends & family – they’ll love it!
Many people who come to watch will donate or pledge to sponsor participating artists – BUT - Sponsorship of a minimum of $15 per hour is required before the start of the event. That’s what will make it a successful fundraiser for these two fine organizations!!!
Commit to 12 hour minimum participation. The record last year was 26 hours – the Mendo County record is 36 hours. I hope YOU can set the new record! Making your art in the fine company of other visual & performing artists is inspiring & always lots of fun for you & our visitors!!!
There are GREAT prizes for the 3 artists who draw the longest & the 3 who raise the most money for the Arts Council of Mendocino County.
Choose one piece (large or small) that you’ve worked on at DtYD to donate to the person who Drops last...could that be YOU?!?!?!?
BUT FIRST – let Elizabeth know you want to participate!
We have room for about 25.
IF you can’t participate in the marathon this year but would like to Volunteer for a few hours before, during or after the event, donate a prize or food, or sponsor one of the artists – PLEASE let Elizabeth know!
Here’s the list of participating artists to-date:
