The Big Draw is back! An invitation from the Friends of the Davison Art Center:

This interactive day invites the community to celebrate drawing in all its forms with workshops for people of all skill levels, from beginners to accomplished artists.  The event is organized to encourage creativity, exploration, invention and fun with activities that break down the “I can’t draw” mindset and celebrate the visual arts.  The event is free and open to the public: adults, students, and children ages five and up.
