So my place of work has rolled out this rad new program. A call went out a few weeks ago for anyone who might be interested in participating in an art project. Over the course of the next few months, local artists will be coming to our centre to lead projects in printmaking, book making (actual books, not, you know, betting), painting, photography, collage and a whole bunch of other stuff. Of course I signed up, because that's how I roll.
Tonight was the first session, and can I just say? I am creatively exhausted. I totally promise to blog more about the experience once I have a few sessions under my belt. I will say though, that it was one of the most emotionally-charged events I've ever attended, and I am so grateful to be a part of it. It's going to rock. And we might even get a gala opening at the end of it. A gala!
The chance to express myself visually AND free drinks and finger foods? Dudes. As IF I wouldn't be in.
