Art-A-Thon

The Art-A-Thon is Danville’s newest community arts event. This art-making extravaganza will showcase the talents of dozens of professional and aspiring artists in our community while raising funds to support the Community Arts Center’s arts education programs.

How It Works:artathon

From 10am to 8pm on Saturday, May 13th, downtown Danville will be overflowing with artists demonstrating their craft. Artists will set up throughout the Community Arts Center, in Weisiger Plaza, Constitution Square, and other downtown locations. Painters and potters, quilters and sculptors, dancers and singers, established professionals and aspiring art students will join together for a day of creative art-making.

How To Get Involved:

Be An Art-Maker – Artists working in all genres and at all levels of experience are invited to participate in the Art-A-Thon. Participating artists commit to a two-hour (kids) or four-hour (adults) shift of continuous art-making on the 13th and to raising funds in support of their participation. All participants who raise at least $100 will receive a free Art-A-Thon t-shirt and be eligible for additional prizes! Registration is now open. You can sign up by clicking here!
