The Big Draw Festival
The 2021 Big Draw Festival Delaware, sponsored by Mispillion Art League (MAL), is pivoting to Plan B because of the leadership’s concern for the health and safety of the community participants and our volunteers. The Festival’s Plan B still promises to be a lot of fun and will emphasize this year’s theme, Make the Change.
Making the Cardboard City last year was an amazing hit with the community, and this year the Art League will be turned into an “Under the Sea” world. We need the community’s help in creating real or imagined sea creatures and plants to inhabit this world—use your imagination and materials found around the house and in the recycle bin!
Plan B also includes a socially distanced “Under the Sea” Costume Parade in downtown Milford on October 30. Show off your own homemade costumes using recycled or recyclable materials. The parade begins at Bicentennial Park in downtown Milford (next to Arena’s parking lot) and follows the Riverwalk to the Farmers Market, where all the creatures can Trick or Treat at the market!
Be sure to pick up a FREE Art Kit starting October 2 at the Milford Farmers Market and at the Art League while supplies last. A few art supplies and a list of ideas plus your imagination equals FUN!
MAL offers classes all year and this October is packed full of art-making! Everyone is welcome, from beginners to advanced, ages 5 and up. Register for upcoming classes at www.mispillionarts.org/big-
