Once a year, we coordinate a drawing event outdoors for our students to practice observational drawing and to also experience drawing in a new setting.
We will provide all the drawing materials. While this drawing event and project is part of our curriculum, students who miss the event will do an alternative project in class.
We usually hold our outdoor drawing event at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, VA. However, this year, we are holding it at the Universal Lantern Festival. Please read the details to the right.
Saturday, October 13 - Sunday, October 14, 2018
**rainy day backup dates: Saturday, October 20 & Sunday, October 21**
***individual drawing session times TBA soon -- look for upcoming email***

There are two types of tickets: Drawing Event tickets and the Lantern Festival tickets
1. Tickets for US Arts Outdoor Drawing Event
Parents need to purchase at $5/person for each attending student and parent. They are effective only during the day and we must be out of the front entrance by 5:30 pm. These tickets cannot be used for any other day than during the daytime of our drawing event on 10/13 or 10/14. They will print special tickets for the US Arts drawing event. We will send out a message when we have the tickets ready.
2. Tickets for the Lantern Festival are separate from the drawing event tickets and can be purchased online. For those interested in the light show and performances, the festival is open to the public at 5:30pm. Enter "XX003" as special promotion code to get additional 7.5% off for all festival tickets you purchase, including children's tickets.
NOTE: We CANNOT use the festival tickets for the drawing event and CANNOT use the drawing event tickets for the festival. Those who purchased festival tickets can use them on any day. If you would like to attend the festival on the same day as the drawing event, we will all exit at 5:30pm and you can re-enter with your festival ticket.
All classes are going to the outdoor drawing events including students in Room 1 and we hope all students will attend. For Room 1, 2, & 3, we require at least 1 parent to go per child. Our teachers will not be able to walk our students to the restroom if anyone needs it.
