Wednesday, April 26th: Covenant House, California

Next up, we’re hosting a “drawing circle” at the Covenant House!  One person starts a character from its head down to the neck, folds the paper so no one can see what he’s drawn, and then passes it along to the next person, who continues the drawing from the shoulders down to the hips, folds it and passes it down the circle, on and on until the character is complete and we do a big reveal of our collaborative creation!  We’ll have multiple drawings going on at once for maximum productivity, community, and laughs.

When: Wednesday, April 26th, 7-8:30PM
Where: 1325 N. Western Avenue
Hollywood, CA 90027-5615
