What we're about


Connect 2 Create is a social group focused on artistic discovery and is geared towards Lynchburg art lovers and artists.

NOTE: You may be removed from the group at the discretion of the artist host for various reasons such as distance from Lynchburg, never-showing, trolling for promotion of other groups, etc. If you are removed but are genuinely serious about joining in on my events you can re-join and just zip me a message relaying your intent. I am trying to create a highly active membership, not just a list of members.

Now that that is out of the way, come Create - Relax - Restore with your artist host - Glo!

Each event is designed to be laid-back, socially fun and centered around discovering or rediscovering the artist in you. All events will be carefully planned and guided and with all materials provided. Sometimes there will be festive light refreshment (no-alcohol unless provided by the venue..sorry!) and all events are designed to help you relax and unwind and go home with a piece you will be proud to display.

Some of our projects are acrylic painting, pop-up art/cards, gel plate printing, paper mosaics, pen and ink, pencil sketching, and as the group grows and continues we will explore even more exciting mediums together! Beginners will learn basics art techniques and those with artistic experience will enjoy using their skills and adding to their knowledge while making new friends and connections!

Connect 2 Create will also host these group events and outings:

• local art exhibits

• nature sessions (art outdoors - when weather allows)

• art camp (possibly a weekend type retreat is a goal)

• and my dream is to host our own Connect 2 Create Art Exhibit where you can invite your friends and family and show your work - maybe even sell a piece or two!


Event costs range from $25 -$35 for members (some of the cost is to cover use of our venue, art supplies, and sometimes refreshment). The goal of this meetup is to create an active group of people who meet often to socialize and create community around the joy of art!
