Project Create’s First Event: Paint Your Own Art at the OCH Art Market

Project Create has reached a new level: we have raised over $1000 (a huge thank you to all of our amazing donors), and we have officially booked our first event at the OCH (Oretha Castle Haley BLVD) Art Market!!!

This Saturday (9/8/2012 – not March 10), we will be hosting a booth where anyone and everyone can paint their own art for FREE! We will have a table set up with acrylic paints, paint brushes, and canvasses for you to paint your little hearts out. So if you are free on Saturday, make your way down to the OCH Art Market and make yourself an artist! This month is focused on wellness and health, so be sure to also check out some great original art, yoga, and Thai food (Yum!).

I hope to see you on Saturday!!! (and until then, be sure to DONATE and help us reach our campaign goal)

The March Art March: GOOD Magazine’s 30-Day Challenge

Art is good, and everybody knows it. But taking time out to create art during a busy work week can be difficult. Trust me, I can sympathize. I work an average of 50 hours a week and I am currently struggling to find time teach myself how to paper mache a life size model of Dolly Parton.

Life goals aside, being creative doesn’t have to be a gigantic task. We can be creative every day with simple actions: doodling, trying a new recipe, sewing on a button, dressing up your dogs in business suits, etc.. The point is, most people don’t realize how easy it is to add a little artistic spice to their daily soup. That’s why I get so excited to see other people make the effort to be more artistic every day.

Check out this challenge from Senior Editor Cord Jefferson and Designer Trevor Burke of online magazine GOOD. The challenge is to be creative 31 times in 30 days with simple tasks. What’s amazing is that their 31 challenges are all things you probably want to do anyways (i.e. go to a museum, frame a picture, and even break something!!!!).

So I say its time to stand up for yourselves and GET CREATIVE. Do you have what it takes??? Be sure to check off your list and let us know about your successes! We would love to see pictures of your creations.

Thanks to my artistic cousin, invadingnola, for sharing this with us!
