MCA, MCCF Supports Davison Art Center’s Upcoming “Big Draw”

The Davison Art Center received a $1,000 grant from the Middletown Commission on the Arts and a $500 grant from the Middlesex County Community Foundation/Mary Ann Lambert Fund to support “The Big Draw: Middletown.”

“The Big Draw: Middletown” is a community event with drawing activities on Sunday, April 22. It is modeled on the successful British program that promotes interactive activities designed to break down the “I can’t draw” syndrome and promote the visual arts.

Organized by the Friends of the Davison Art Center to celebrate their 50th anniversary, the event will be located on Wesleyan’s campus, including the Davison Art Center, Center for the Arts and Beckham Hall. It will be free and open to the public. The target audience is all members of the community: students, amateur artists, aspiring artists, and those who never considered the possibility of attempting to create art. There will be 12-14 different activities including mapping, automatic drawing, mural making, life study, and movement and line.
