CREATE Arts Center Art and Writing

For tonight's writing activity, Randy, an experienced screenwriter, will be presenting on "8 Essential Plot Points" so we can all learn the secret of how the "Bourne Identity" is actually the same plot as "Toy Story"!  Writing prompts will be available if needed once we begin our writing activity.

The art activity will be by Rae.  We will be working with cross-hatching using line to create shading.  For those who enjoy the real thing, bring some nice paper and a pen (preferably) or pencils.  Gel pens often are the nicest for line work or very fine tip pens such as the Pilot Razor Point.

For those who enjoy working with iPads (as Rae does), make sure you have a good app for lines and a stylus.  We suggest the app "ProCreate" for a wonderful combination of textures, layers, and blending!  We will have a variety of options to draw, from children's sculptures, to images in magazines (particularly National Geographics).  Feel free to bring your own project to work on!

Please come prepared to work on a project during the session :-)  There is a second room available for those who want to socialize while creating.



Create Arts is a great little art space in Silver Spring that allows us to rent a room for $5 per person per night.  Often, we get two rooms so really are able to spread out!


We can't wait to see you there - bring your art supplies or laptops or paper or just yourselves - this is a combination of social time and creation time.  People who need quiet space can wander into other areas in the studio.


And yes, the wifi is now available.  I finally have the code.


There are outlets available, bathrooms, and water.  Afterwards, we head into downtown Silver Spring to grab dinner.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
