2019 Big Draw Festival

Mispillion Art League Offering First-time Statewide Art Event In October

Mispillion Art League (MAL) presents The 2019 Big Draw Festival DE sponsored by Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus.  This festival takes place during the month of October, offering over 50 activities and classes suitable for artists and non-artists, families, and kids throughout the state of Delaware. The Festival is part of an international annual event taking place in over 25 countries and involving more than 500,000 participants.

The aim of the Festival is to encourage community members to participate in art-making and enjoy the benefits of self-expression and creativity using a multitude of mediums. There will be drawing activities for all skill levels, photography classes, painting classes, and sandcastle making. In October, folks will be making chalk art on the street, painting a mandala on the Mispillion Art League building, crafting origami birds, sketching dancers and actors in costume, taking photographs with light, learning to create wicked zombie makeup for Halloween, and much more.

MAL is partnering with Jerry’s Artarama in Newark, Milton Arts Guild, Rehoboth Art League, DAC (Developing Artist Collaboration) in Rehoboth Beach, Yorklyn Center for Creative Arts, Newark Arts Alliance and Gallery 107/Nanticoke River Arts Council to bring these and other exciting art opportunities to our surrounding communities. The 2019 Big Draw Festival DE news will be posted on Facebook, the MAL website, and on Delaware Scene. We will be posting more information, along with details about each event, as we move closer to October.
