The High School of Art and Design held its 4th biannual Draw-A-Thon on November 21. Alumni, artists, students, prospective students, parents, and teachers participated. Aside from nine hours of drawing and painting, there was free pizza -- a Draw-A-Thon tradition -- and a collection of raffle prizes. Among them: $100 gift certificates for art supplies and framing, a one-hour photographic portrait session (valued at $200), the New Nintendo 3DS Xl (valued at $200), and a personal watercolor portrait (valued at $500).
