This weekend: MPAartfest!

This Sunday is MPAarfest in McLean - I did it last year and it was amazing, so I'm back this Sunday.

Thus, on Sunday, October 2nd, 2011 MPAartfest will transform McLean Central Park into a lively landscape of mini art galleries showcasing and offering for sale the work of a diverse group of 46 juried artists, including The Lenster.

MPAartfest includes activities to captivate art-lovers of all ages. Stroll through the Children's ArtWalk, sponsored by McLean Community Foundation and coordinated by New Dominion Women's Club, to experience the work of young artists from McLean area schools. Budding artists may create their own works of art at Innovation Station sponsored by TTR/Sotheby's International Realty.

Live model drawing, courtesy of MPA's Open Studio, will give all ages a chance to draw and an "en plein air" demonstration will help round out the festival.

The Gazebo Stage will feature a variety of live performances throughout the day. Click here for the schedule

And their food vendors will offer a wonderful selection of food and beverages for your discerning palate.

See ya there!

Tolman creatures

I am hearing all kinds of great things about Ben Tolman's show "a few more drawings..."? at The Fridge.

Wonder how he does it? Come on Sunday, October 2nd from 2-4 and learn how to design a creature with him. All ages and skill levels welcomed. Supplies are included for a suggested $20 donation
