Draw Your Community

Draw Your Community

We’re celebrating our communities through drawing! Submit a drawing depicting what you love about your community/neighborhood (a place, a person, an idea) for display in a September art show at participating libraries.  

All through August, free drawing supplies and drawing classes will be available at Cheyenne Mountain Library, Manitou Springs Library, Monument Library, Old Colorado City Library, Penrose Library, and Rockrimmon Library. All ages and skill levels are welcome to participate.

Submit your drawing in person at one of the libraries above or online here from August 1 - August 31!

Libraries will display their community’s drawings in September. An online gallery will also be available to browse. Artists are invited to the gallery open houses in September to talk about their work with the public and to meet other artists.
