Thank you thank you thank you

To the latest and greatest of Meet Make Share:

Thank you all for coming out on Friday for our end of semester show, and the fantastic ceremony of Meet Make Share hand-over expansion.  It was a blast! Now is the time we break for summer, catch our breaths from the sprint to the end of semester, and drink. (Water or whatever...) 

It has been an incredible year, and Meet Make Share could not have happened without it's people. I want to arrange a final get together for my Kansas City Meet Make Share experience before I move out to Oregon.  I will keep you updated as the event unveils itself to me (I'm thinking it will be somewhat mobile, and ice cream will be involved.) Just leave your schedule open from 7-10 on Wednesday and we'll meet up at studio and have an adventure!

Save the INDA nation!

Whew another week gone, and just a few more to go! Well, today we're having a sort of double meeting set up.  At 1 oclock I've called an open meeting to talk about the Interdisciplinary Department and different measures we can take to express our feelings about the sudden decision to cut the program... Seeing that it has been the birth place and main venue for Meet Make Share I'd like to invite anyone and everyone to attend.  

Then at 6, rather than five (so we can eat/sleep/whatever) there will be the regular Meet Make Share with movie and all.  The activity might correlate to what we'll have covered at the 1 oclock meeting, but I'll put the spread of goods out so we can be a little spontaneous about what we make.  

I'd also like to make a preliminary announcement about the ceremony to commemorate the passing of Meet Make Share to two new coordinators to head the Kansas City MMS, as I will be going on to Portland and starting one up out there.  This exciting event will be at 5:30, May 8th as part of the end of semester show "Indanetics."  Come one, come all!

One last thing, 
enjoy the weather! And I'll see you in studio.

we all need to know what's coming

In honor of the mysterious abysmal future that awaits many of us graduating, I figured we aught to make our own predictions for our futures.  They could help with some choices that need to be made, or at least decide what we should have for dinner.  If we can devise a way to make magic 8 balls, that would be awesome.  I'll bring some jars to look at.  Any good movie ideas? I was thinking Poltergeist, it's good, creepy, funny, and the little sqeaky shaman lady is sort of a fortune teller right? Well bring something if it seems appropriate. See you in studio.

Hair? Hare?

I apologize for last week, I was busy checking out 600 alpaca at the MOPACA convention!! Maybe someday I will have a farm. -Anyway- tomorrow, in studio we'll be watching Arnold battle the dread-locked alien in predator, while we do up our hair into awesome corn row assortments. I will have mini-rubber band hair binders, combs, water, and bobby pins.  Bring your do's and your friends with their do's.  I know we're sort of in the nearing of the end of semester sprint, but stop by, or bring your project to work on- you won't regret it! See you there!

Spring Break (RIP)

Whew! What a week.  First of all, I'd like to thank everyone that came out to the special Meet Make Share at the Monarch Gallery on the 13th, it was a blast! There wouldn't have been a Meet Make Share spot at the opening without you. I hope you all were able to make it to the opening on Friday and see the results of your creative minds and bodies.  Well...I'm dreading the school week ahead, as I'm sure any spring breaker can relate. SO- there will be a Meet Make Share tonight in studio, I understand for many of us we have critiques tomorrow, but we might need a break in there too. 

Student Assembly has graciously funded Meet Make Share, and over the break I was able to go out and get a whole bunch of new goodies for us to work with, so come by tonight when you're at the hair-tearing-out point of your work, and take a break.  Play with some clay.  We have brand new sharpies...120 colors of crayons. See you there.

Let's try this again.

Hey folksies, happy week of beautiful weather! So last week was a bit of a disaster in Meet Make Share terms; Alicia was in St. Louis until a half hour before we were supposed to start, and basically it never happened. (This isn't Alicia's fault, the group just never congregated into anything)  So, we get a do-over, a mulligan, a try-try again.  Bring on the pop star posters for real!!


I have another little something for us to do for a project Zach is doing with project Row Houses.  This is more idea making and writing down, but it will be fun and easy, and will be part of a 25 cent art dispenser (once feminine product dispenser).  So...double wammy this Sunday, and then!

A special Meet Make Share event is happening Friday at the Monarch Gallery from 6-9pm  I'll post more details in a few days, but it's part of the Glee Medicine show that will open on March 20th.

Whew, so onward with the pop star posters and dispensable art projects.  I will see you tomorrow!
