It's TRUE! Tomorrow, March 30, is National Pencil Day.
A simple graphite lead encased in wood in the hands of an artist can create incredible works. Celebrate National Pencil Day by doing a drawing in pencil...colored pencils included!
Feel free to share your drawings online and use the hashtag #NationalPencilDay to post your creations to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.
