!!! Hello Fellow Artists !!!
The date has been set for Draw til You Drop ‘17– April 1 – til ???
(who knows when it will end?)
DtYD will be held at the Willits Center for the Arts this year & will be a fundraiser for WCA & the Arts Council of Mendocino County
???? Will you be there MaKiNg ARt with us ????
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.
You have either been in DtYD before, or expressed an interest – SO – thought I’d give you the first chance to play with us again & help raise money for the arts in Mendocino County!!! The space is limited – so let me know if you’d like to join in & I’ll send you sponsor sheets & any other details you’ll need.
We’ll start ArTing at 10 am, Saturday morning. All meals, lots of snacks & drinks will be provided while you work. Good live music by several local players will happen at various times throughout the day & night & maybe some poetry reading to inspire us!
What do YOU need to DO????
Commit to 12 hour minimum participation. The record last year was 30 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!!!
Sign people up to pledge (either per-hour or lump sum) to donate as your sponsors. 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 the Arts Council.
Choose one piece (large or small) that you’ve worked on at DtYD to donate as a prize to the person who Drops last. …Could that be YOU?!?!?!?
PRiZeS for ALL who last 24 hours & more for the 3 artists who draw the longest & the 3 artists who raise the most sponsor donations for the Arts Council of Mendocino County, who sends artists into schools all over the county!!!
BUT FIRST – you’ve gotta let me know you want to participate!
Hope you’ll join us!!!
I’m hoping to hear from as many artists as possible SOON – 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 me know!
