ABOUT THE AKRON PAINTING AND DRAWING LEAGUE
The Akron Painting and Drawing League (APDL) is a student-run organization at the University of Akron that allows for the camaraderie of painting and drawing enthusiasts across disciplines.
The group is dedicated to providing members with meaningful experiences that will help to develop their passion for the arts, including individualized, meaningful critique in a supportive setting outside the classroom. This allows for students to develop a dialogue about their work in a low pressure setting. The league also aims to assist students in building their resumes by offering workshops in grant writing and coordinating service opportunities.
Artist Del Rey Loven is the league’s advisor. He has held the rank of tenured Professor of Art at The University of Akron since 2006. His prior academic appointment was Chair of Art, Design and Architecture at Judson University in the Chicago area.
