The QuickDraw is a fun, sometimes frantic,  great event that you don’t want to miss! The work created is powerful, imbued with energy and light, and is often bold in color and brushwork. As a painter, you’ll paint from the heart, not the head… and as a collector, you’ll find affordable fresh works by some truly GREAT painters!
