Killarney Community Art Show and Vancouver Draw Down

Two great art events are happening this weekend!  I will be taking part in the Killarney Community Art Show tonight from 6-8PM and the Vancouver Draw Down tomorrow from 11AM to 1PM.  Both events take place at Killarney Community Centre.

The Vancouver Draw Down is a city-wide event.  Check out the website for a workshop near you!!! I encourage you to check out The Network at Mount Pleasant CC,  Draw a Dragon's Tale at Hillcrest CC, or visit me at Killarney CC for some Mad Lib drawings.  We'll be pulling words from boxes and making up stories and drawings about them!    Take part and take pictures!  Post to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to flood the Draw Down page with photos!  Tag your photos: @VanDrawDown #DrawDown #DailyDrawing.

Vancouver Draw Down 2015

Once again I'll be participating in the Vancouver Draw Down at Killarney Community Centre, and it's just one week from today!

Check out the Vancouver Draw Down website, Facebook page or Twitter feed @vandrawdown  for details.

I'll be at Killarney CC doing some crazy mad lib drawings.  Have you ever seen a cat riding a bike?  Birds playing hockey?  A backpack playing tennis?  Well, I have, and you can see something just as crazy if you come to KCC on June 20 from 11AM to 1PM.

Vancouver Draw Down TODAY!!

I am surrounded by squares and scraps of fabrics in various colours and have been up late the past few nights cutting and pinning fabric to boards in preparation for today's Draw Down event at Killarney Community Centre.  I'm up early, partly to finish up some last-minute preparations, and partly out of sheer excitement!

I will be set up in the lobby of Killarney from 10:30 to 12:30 today, with a group of volunteers from the sewing club and a quilter/artist friend to assist the people of Killarney (and anyone else who ventures into the neighbourhood) create a "community quilt".   Participants will be given a square of fabric and invited to make a drawing of their family, or a symbol of what "family" means to them.  Then, the squares will be assembled by sewers into blocks and made into a quilt top, right there on the spot!

I'm hoping that this will be a real "happening"!  Come on out and check out the action!

Vancouver Draw Down is coming!!!

It's almost time to get out and draw!  If you're in the Greater Vancouver Area, then the only problem you're going to have on June 14 is deciding WHICH amazing drawing workshop you're going to participate in!  I'm excited to be participating in this project for the first time!

Now in its 5th year, the Vancouver Draw Down  is a city-wide day of drawing that celebrates creativity and challenges commonplace ideas about what drawing is and what it can do. Reconnect with the power and pleasure of making your mark at over 45 FREE drawing workshops on Saturday, June 14.

Come help me make a community quilt at Killarney Community Centre, or visit the Cave of Wonders with my friend Katherine Nielsen at Hillcrest!  Do one, or come up with a game plan that lets you hit up several events! 
Visit for workshop details.
