What we're about

This meet up group was created with the intent of bringing artists together to work on art in both indoor and outdoor settings.

All artists are welcome. An example of a meet up in this group, would be meeting in a public park to paint the surroundings or work on other existing projects.

I think a group like this has a special opportunity to meet, discuss, and reflect about the ways the city of Ottawa is changing through our art. It is a great chance of capturing the modernity of today, tying our actions into the community.

But the group is also simply a fun, open, free space to join other artists, while creating art, so that the art making process is less lonely and filled with human interactions.

In addition, the group is intended to be a safe place where we can gain and share constructive criticism on pieces we are working on, in order to better fulfill our ideas.

My aim is to create a group that is supportive of all art, whether it is art for fun, art that is aimed to be sold, art that is aimed for galleries to create conversations, or any other intentions for making the art.

All art is welcome and all artists are welcome.

This group, regardless of my intentions of making it, is about what all who join want out of an art making meet up group.

Please contact Vanessa Waller for any questions, suggestions, or complaints.
