This past weekend was a great one for The Art League, and the long-awaited Drawing Marathon and the return of the annual Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser were both hugely successful! Thank you to everyone who participated!
The Drawing Marathon, from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm on Saturday, included models and visits from Art League instructors throughout the day. The event benefitted the “30-Something” Campaign to raise funds for the Madison Annex Project. You can read more about Saturday’s events in this great write-up by Drawing Marathon participant Kathleen Best Gillmann, pictured below working on one of the pieces she completed that day.
The Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser was our most successful ever — you picked up over 1,000 handmade bowls created by Art League ceramics artists! Lots of people came by Saturday and Sunday to enjoy ice cream from Artfully Chocolate and add to the community art project by instructor Steve Prince. There was great weather (except for the storm that interrupted Saturday) and a great turnout.
Thanks to everyone who supported us this weekend! Which activity was your favorite?
