A new idea to bring artist and the artist-hopefuls together at the Albany Museum of Art.

For the next week, anyone can go to the museum and draw on a special wall.

It's completely free and you can draw anything you want.

Executive Director Nick Nelson says he hopes it will bring the community together.

"It's really about people coming out and having fun, making something and being creative, whether you're an artist or not. And you know, you get an opportunity to see artist's work but people shouldn't feel like they can't make a mark either," says Nelson.

Crayons, markers and pencils are all provided.

Next Saturday they will put the finishing touches on the wall and exhibit it in the museum for all to see.
