The Drawarama Closing-Night Lounge
Sat, Oct 08, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Bushel invites one and all to the closing-night event for Drawarama on Saturday, October 8, 7:00 til the music stops!

There will be collective drawing, music, and a look at the multitude of drawings generated in the Drawarama workshops and drawing experiments, led by Hamden artist Mercedes Teixido, with Pareesa Pourian and Helen Quinn. Doodling musical accompaniment provided by Brian Crabtree and Kelli Cain. Refreshments will be served. Free and open to all.

“In our communal sessions we’ve made some incredible drawings,” reports Mercedes Teixido. “We are all learning from each other as we work through exercises that free the hand and mind like making blind contour drawings, practicing fumage with oil lamps, or taking rubbings off surfaces and cutout shapes.” Materials will be available at the closing-night event for attendees to further explore these techniques.
