Northampton Draws: Encouraging Community Creativity
This past Thursday, July 28th, in the old Dynamite Space at Thornes Marketplace and at the Northampton Center for the Arts, a free interactive drawing festival took place called Northampton Draws. This family-friendly event invited the community to come and get creative together.
