The 8TH ANNUAL 24 HR DRAW-A-THON will begin 6am November 30th, 2013 at the Marigny Opera House!
Press Street’s 24-hour Draw-a-thon is the only event of its kind in the city of New Orleans. It is an art experience in which people are active participants– not spectators; where the entire premise is to encourage creating for the sake of creating. It is an all-ages, free event that is open to the public with all art materials provided.
Throughout a 24 hour period- beginning 6am on a Saturday and ending at 6am Sunday- workshops for all ages are held. Participants also let loose in an open space, walls and floors covered with paper to literally draw all over.
Draw-a-thon began in 2006, where it was hosted at the Green Project, a recycled building materials warehouse. Draw-a-thon out grew the space, and in 2011 was hosted at the Old Ironworks nearby and in 2012 and again this year, we are excited to host Draw-a-thon at the Marigny Opera House.
