Drawing Together Day 2013

Inspired by former arts faculty members, Drawing Together Day on September 9, 2013, brought back a tradition to the Catlin Gabel campus: a time when people of all ages take time to draw. Students from preschool through 12th grade and their teachers, and staff members, all spent one hour on a beautiful late summer afternoon drawing on cardboard circles. The event not only sparked creativity, but furthered the sense of community that enlivens the school. When the drawings were done, they were assembled into a chandelier-like structure and installed in Catlin Gabel’s new Creative Arts Center. Visitors to the building are inspired by the demonstration of the community’s creativity, and the school’s commitment to the arts. And the students love to find their drawing hanging there!

Does your school do something similar?

  1. Here at Christchurch School we have a great “cooperative drawing” project that we like to do with faculty and students. Each student pairs with an adult and they draw for one minute intervals before rotating the page so that each draws on the side already started by the other. It’s a fun and thought-provoking experiment in flexibility, creativity and cooperation.
