On Saturday, January 19, members of the PCA&D community enjoyed 12 hours of drawing.
Draw On! featured day-long and quick poses with costumed and nude models, and workshops that use alternative media for drawing.
And the public joined the fun, too. See photos from the event on our Facebook wall.

No instruction was provided, but there was lots of camaraderie and fun with others for whom drawing is a passion. And drawing isn't just about charcol and paper.
The 2013 Draw On! featured new morning and afternoon workshops, such as:
Drawings inspired by circus acts. Create an accordion-style drawing with a different act on each page. Models will perform acrobatic poses with circus inspired props. Led by Heidi Leitzke (painter and PCA&D faculty member and gallery director) and alumna Caitlin Herrschaft '12.
Monotype workshop. Monotyping is a type of printmaking made by drawing or painting on a smooth, non-absorbent surface, and produces a unique print, or monotype. During the workshop, students will work from observation with a model and a still life or create their own designs to learn the possibilities of the monotype process. All basic materials provided. No experience necessary. Led by printmaker David Snyder (and PCA&D associate professor in the Fine Art and Foundation departments) and alumna Eileen Heasley '12.
Drawing and digital printing. No experience necessary. Create new possibilities by combining traditional drawing media with digital printing. Draw directly on inkjet prints. Fine art vellum print paper will be provided for prints up to 24 inches. Bring your own digital photographs or images, previously prepared drawings or collages, or objects that can be scanned. Led by David Moss, artist and professor in PCA&D's Fine Art and Foundation departments.
Draw On! was sponsored by the Fine Art department at PCA&D.
