|Ginger Hair 6 x 6 Mixed Media|
Getting together with art friends for an afternoon of making can be just the right kick-start for your creative mojo if it’s gone missing. I love gathering with other artists, with a tote bag of art supplies for a few hours of creative time and catching up, with chips and salsa and some art-making background music. All the better if everyone is working in different media. The hostess of my last foray into Art Day supplied gelli plates for some fast no-press printmaking (thanks, JMC!). I came home with a stack of fun backgrounds to adorn with other media. This one (below) became a little watercolor & colored pencil portrait (above).
Do you gather with art friends? Have you considered hosting an evening of making with some like-minded pals?
