“LAA DRAWS V” is held in association with The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT to bring this event to the Fairfield County community. This drawing celebration is one of many in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. “Draw On!” events encourage entire communities to celebrate drawing and express themselves in new and imaginative ways. Admission is free. Children of all ages and their parents are encouraged to participate.
