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!

teenie bop pop poster night

So oscar night was pretty fun, we made a nice collection of mini-statuettes ranging from a 2" oscar to a rocket ship and a two-headed quadri-ped.  Tonight's plan was suggested by Alicia, and she will be bringing some general poster supplies, I'll have some glue and paper and glitter type things as well.  If you want, print out some fantastic photos of your favorite pop star (I might get some old school J.T.T. to bring be back to my 6th grade heart throb) otherwise we should have some current People magazines and their equivalents to dig through!  Also, I've got movies, but if you have a totally fantastic one bring it in!  See you in the studio tonight.

And for other news...
Last Monday I had a meeting with Student Assembly's Allocations Committee about allocating some funds for Meet Make Share.  I gave my pitch about how great this past year has been, and how rich the creative experience is when your with a group of folks that want to hang out and make stuff too.  I'll keep everyone posted about the goings on with funds, I should find out next week. Fingers crossed!
