How about adding some art adventures to your weekend? The National Gallery of Art is hosting The Big Draw Festival, a two-day celebration of drawing featuring activities for artists of all ages!
On Saturday, October 26, from 5pm to 8pm, enjoy extended evening hours at the museum creating 3-D illustrations, experimenting with materials in the Sketching lab, and enjoying special performances by Joy of Motion Dance.
On Sunday, October 27, from 11am to 5pm, there will be even more festivities for families. You can create a “sidewalk” sketch in the Family Art Lab, draw wacky creatures while on a scavenger hunt, and read a book aloud, move, and play during Storytime.
This will all take place in the National Gallery of Art East Building. And admission to all of it is free!
