So I actually talked to a few people about this. I'm not sure what day I would do it but definately some time in November. I love arts and crafts; painting, colored pencils, chalk all different kinds of media. I, however, am really bad at starting a piece of art. I mull it around in my head, sketch, resketch and resketch again and again until I talk myself out of actually doing it :P Type A personality and art sometimes conflict. BUT! If I had a group of other peeps I might be more inclined just to "wing it".
If you like to create any type of art perhaps we should consider getting together...sort of like a art support group! You can bring what ever type of media you like (I am a little more inclined to say no to clay and oil paint unless we meet in my garage, which is now cold or you bring a tarp) and spend 1-3 hours working on a piece of art. We could all even pick a theme and create our interpretation of it???
We could meet perhaps once a month and try to make progress on the pieces and finish within a given time frame. Maybe even put all the pieces in a Starbucks or my building (Multnomah Arts Center) has a gallery too...
What should the first theme be? "rain", "we miss the sun", "Portland in fall", "why oh why didn't I wear a third layer today?"
