“Drawing Together” Dec. 7 @ 7 p.m., Mudd Library

Thursday is your LAST CHANCE to attend “Drawing Together”! We’ll be gathering at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the Mudd Library Living Room.

With finals approaching, this “Drawing Together” is a bit of a free-for-all. Of course, we’ll have the usual supplies: paper, markers, crayons, coloring pencils, books to check out from the Albion College Graphic Medicine Collection, and SNACKS. But we’ll also have coloring-book pages! And we’ll make an 8-page mini-zine!

Feel free to bring your favorite drawing supplies, bring some of your favorite comics or samples of your art, and bring your friends — whether joining us again or for the first time. As always, everyone is welcome and zero artistic skills are required.

Let’s brush off some of our late-semester stress by drawing together one last time!
