Draw On! is a community program started by The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in 2006. It is designed to bring together people of all ages through something as simple as drawing, while also fostering new and imaginative ways to draw. Draw On! brings together entire communities to celebrate drawing, and to discover the potential inherent in drawing to encourage learning, communication, and understanding. Events take place across the country in schools, libraries, senior centers and businesses, and involve people of all ages and abilities. The Ridgefield Library has taken part in the program every year since its inception and we are once again proud to partner with the Aldrich for this celebration. Draw On! will take place from Saturday, March 24 through Saturday, April 7, and we invite people of all ages to come to the Library’s Children’s Services Department and draw their favorite character from a book. We will have paper, crayons, and colored pencils available for you, and all drawings will be on display in the Library throughout the two weeks of the program. Please stop in at the Library and Draw On!
