A Unique Downtown LA Drawing Festival (that's free)

During the last few weeks I've probably been a little way too busy for my own good. There are so many projects I've involved myself with, and most importantly, there are two little boys who need my EXTRA attention right now that this blog has truly been neglected... but I'm baaaack!

I'm back because in between all the madness, I still love to write about fun things and share with my readers (however many of you are still there) about unique events in my dear city of Los Angeles.
One of those unique events (which I attended for the first time last year) is the Big Draw LA's "Make Your Mark in the Park"-- a free drawing festival for families where kids and adults alike can test their artistic abilities through a series of drawing opportunities!

The Big Draw LA is a month-long art celebration that takes place each year. It's hosted by Ryman Arts, a nonprofit organization dedicated to offering Southern California teens free art instruction.
The Big Draw LA's flagship event is the "Make your Mark in the Park" festival and here's why you should check it out:
You think you've got skills in making paper airplanes (and decorating them too)? There's gonna be a station for that.
 You want to test your tape drawing talent? Rolls upon rolls of colored tape will be provided.
Curious to see how well you can decorate a bike? It'll be CicLAvia weekend so there will be plenty of opportunity for that!
Plus, there will be booths and tables for other fun projects like Styrofoam print-making and drawing costumed models.
All in all, the Make your Mark in the Park Festival promises to offer guests of all ages a really neat opportunity to delve in the art of drawing through different mediums, all while enjoying music and the LA City Hall Tower as the backdrop.
