'Draw-In' to provide creative opportunity for all

November 28, 2011

The Northwestern Oklahoma State University Studio Art program is co-sponsoring its first “Draw-In” event Friday, Dec. 2, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Graceful Arts Gallery and Studios in downtown Alva. This event coincides with Alva’s First Friday art festivities.

Brandice Guerra, director of studio art, said the “Draw-In” is a communal drawing event provided for people from Northwestern, as well as the public to attend and contribute drawings, sketches and doodles. All drawing supplies will be provided.

“Drawing is fundamental to most creative processes,” Guerra said. “It’s a way to organize and communicate visual thoughts. To engage in this activity in a group setting will allow people to respond to each other’s ideas in a somewhat novel way. There will be large sheets of paper on tables, the floor and walls and various drawing supplies. Folks can drop in and draw for 15 minutes or the entire two hours if they’d like. They also may bring their own drawing materials if they prefer.”

Refreshments will be provided.

The Graceful Arts Gallery and Studios, co-sponsor of the “Draw-In,” is located at 523 Barnes.
