October Arts Council Art Market – Big Numbers for a Big Day!!!

This is a momentous post for two reasons:

First, this marks the 40th blog post for Project Create!!! I know 40 seems like an odd number to celebrate, but I am in a celebratory mood and our 40th post is 40 more than zero, which is where we would be if Project Create didn’t exist.

Secondly (and probably more importantly), I want to fill you all in on the great day we had on Saturday at the Arts Council Of New Orleans Arts Market. It was a cold and blustery New Orleans afternoon (I think maybe around 60 degrees), which is certainly not what I had anticipated the hot south to be like, but I am not complaining! Nevertheless, the New Orleans community braved the chill and the market was jam packed.

Project Create’s Children’s Painting Booth produced 62 paintings. Sixty Two!!! This. Is. Incredible. In one day, because of Project Create, there are 62 more artwork in the world. This brings our total up to 108 new artists!

Finally in the Big Leagues: Free Children’s Art Event at the Arts Council of New Orleans Arts Market

Well I can say with no small amount of pride that Project Create has made it big!!! We are now working in association with the Arts Council of New Orleans to provide an activity booth for kids at the Arts Market this weekend…as in the Arts Council actually contacted Project Create and hired us (enter screams and shouts of glee and merriment)!!!!!!!!!

So come on down tomorrow  (10/27) to Palmer Park (on the corner of Carrollton and Claiborne). We will be there from 10 till 3:30 with painting activities for your kids! And don’t worry, parents and adults can paint too (if you ask nicely…).

Free Day of the Dead Masks: Latin Art at the OCH Art Market 10/13/12

This month, the OCH Art Market will be showcasing Latin art and artists…muy caliente! Make sure to come on down and see Project Create, where we will be hosting another free art project: Day of the Dead Masks! This is a great opportunity for art lovers, young and old, to express their creativity and explore the beauty of Latin Art.

The OCH Art Market is proud to be collaborating with the Roger Thayer Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane to celebrate Hispanic culture on OC Haley Blvd. in staging the Latino Art themed OCH Art Market in awareness of National Hispanic Heritage Month. The OCH Art Market is held on the second Saturday of every month at 1618 O.C. Haley Blvd, right in the heart of Central City. This building, also home to the Zeitgeist Theatre, is a protected historic landmark and with its 18 foot ceilings is a tourist attraction in itself. The market seeks to provide a foothold for returning Central City and Dryades Street to its former glory as a thriving commercial district second only to Canal Street.

More information on this market can be found on the OCH website, http://www.ochartmarket.com/ or by contacting us at ochartmarket@gmail.com with any questions or comments. Find us on Facebook (Project Create, O.C.H. Art Market) or Twitter (@PrjCreate_Nola, @OCHArtMarket).

State of Affairs: Help Project Create Spread the Word and Raise Money For Supplies!!!

We have certainly had an eventful last few weeks and I am happy to announce that we have a lot more coming up!!!

The OCH Art Market was such a great success that we are now booked to have a FREE Art booth for at least the next few markets (and hopefully all of them from now on!). You can find out more about the OCH Art Market here. In October, the market is showcasing Latino Art, and Project Create will have  a booth set up for you to come on down and make some of your own Latino Art for FREE!!! Here is the link for the event.

Project Create is also proud to announce that it has been booked for its first private event!!! One of the patrons at the OCH Art Market picked up one of our flyers and contacted us a few days later to provide art entertainment at an annual picnic event. I will certainly post more details about that in the future, but I could not be happier to know that our name is getting out there!!!

So far we have raised almost $1500 which is outstanding, but it is going to take more than that to open our own studio! You can help us out by letting your social network know about Project Create  and all of the great work we are trying to accomplish! And don’t forget to Like us on Facebook and send out our donation link so we can raise enough money to keep FREE Art events available!

Stay tuned for more great news and updates!!!
