Last year’s inaugural Dawdle & Doodle Days proved that art is something that you can do, not just admire. Thousands of people took to the streets of Hahndorf with chalk, local yarnbombers ‘The Colour Crew’ were out in force, and dozens of cafes/restaurants encouraged patrons to doodle on napkins and paper table cloths – turning the entire town into a giant art gallery.

This October 6 and 7, Dawdle & Doodle Days are back, bigger and better.

It’s the last weekend of the school holidays, and a great way for kids of all ages to express themselves and have fun, without breaking the bank.

Well-known Adelaide artists including Thom Buchanan will be getting creative all weekend, so come along, be inspired and create your own work of street art.

They’ve provided the chalk and the footpath – they just need the artists. Is that you?

All you need to do is go to Hahndorf and get drawing.  Or participate with some yarnbombing!

Tweet artwork using hashtag #AdelHills or post on their Facebook page (facebook/DawdleandDoodle) if you want to share with the world, or just let the passing crowd admire your work.

Held over the weekend of the opening of the Heysen Prize Exhibition at the Hahndorf Academy, Dawdle & Doodle Days is about celebrating our landscape in an interactive way – draw cartoons or recreate a Hans Heysen masterpiece, write a poem or show us your mastery of typography. Just remember it’s a family day, so any obscenity will be dealt with by the super-soakers of ‘The Clown Police’.

Last year we counted artwork messages in 19 different languages, and saw artists in action from the age of 2 to 82, proving that art is truly universal.

See you on the street!
