Createful Compendium Weekly: We Won!

Summer greetings!

While I had hoped to share studio Createful e-news a bit more often, it seems I have skipped a few weeks. Sorry about that. The studio has been busy--buzzing with new artmaking and new friends. But when I'm not at the studio?  It's more like Zzzzzzzzz.

Summer is like that.

I did want to pop in, though, and share what's going on around here. It's pretty exciting!

First Place, Baby!

Our two art groups collaborated on a mixed media piece this spring. We each made a dress out of found materials on the same size canvas and then we put it together. Can you believe Laura found that piece of wire that looks just like a hanger?  Anyway, we entered the final piece in the Marin County Fair...and we won first place! This picture doesn't do it justice (it just doesn't photograph that well), but here you go:

Artist top to bottom, left to right: Denise Herman, Mimi Schreiber, Patricia Hamilton, Tracy Brusman, Cara Honigsfeld, Laura O'Leary, Alice Orth, Chris Shaw, Yvonne Roberts, and Bibi Summer.

You'll have to come visit the studio to see it up close. Each dress is beautiful and wildly different from one another, very much expressing the individual artist. 

Way to go Createful Studio Art Groups!

Art Fix Weekly Classes Crazy Fun!

Art Fix classes are filling up faster and faster.  We now offer an Art Fix class every Thursday and Friday afternoon—and one Saturday a month. I may have to open up a new time soon! 

These weekly project-based classes are always filled with new ideas, new techniques and new mediums—and tons of imagination and inspiration—as we tackle a new project every week (see details here. If you haven't joined us yet, you should!)

 For the summer, we're doing something a bit different. Many of us are building a "handmade altered art journal" and so each week we are creating new pages in that; others come in and create similarly, but on their own surface of choice such as their own art journal or watercolor paper or even a small canvas.

I can't wait to show you our completed books and final artworks! But until then...I'll share a few pictures:

Okay - those last two pics weren't from our Art Fix classes...I'm afraid I'm terrible about taking pictures as we art in class! Instead, you see our Thursday night Art Group playing with Indigo Dye techniques--and the last is a group of a few Artist Trading Cards I made while on vacation...

I have to say a summer day with cocktails and a swimming pool is pretty nice...and so is a summer day slipping into creative flow...

Hope you're having a great summer and hope to see you in the studio soon!
