The Big Draw was a big deal for art lovers

The Firehouse Cultural Center hosted The Big Draw, an afternoon of creative activities for people of all ages, on April 14. Professional artists and art educators led the activities, which drew more than 300 participants, some from as far as Plant City.

“The weather was lovely,” said Georgia Vahue, the cultural center’s executive director. “We had so many families, including grandparents with their grandchildren, participate. And everyone seemed to be enjoying the (array) of activities we offered.”

Vahue said the programming committee, led by Laurie Burhop, did “a beautiful job” of coming up with ideas for the event.  

First-time visitors had the chance to win a week of summer camp, two tickets to the Firehouse Pub and a free workshop or class with either the center’s artist in residence or its summer TMA Studio.
