November OCH Art Market – Recycled Art!

Well we had another great day at the OCH Art Market this month.

First, I want to give a huge shout out to our very first volunteer, Heather. She is a current Tulane Law student who took time out of her busy schedule (trust me, I know) to man the booth at the market. She did an amazing job and I could not be more grateful.

The theme this month was recycled art, and Project Create provided another group art project. In traditional NOLA style, we made a recycled hanging Fleur de Lis:

Project Create Group Art Project: Recycled Fleur De Lis at the OCH Art Market 11/10/12

I found the window sash on the side of the road (please be careful when picking up items off the road…they can have glass still attached that is VERY dangerous). The fleur de lis is made out of an old cardboard moving box from when I moved to New Orleans. I cut the symbol into 29 puzzle pieces, and let customers at the market pick a piece to paint however they wanted. The symbol is attached to the sash with some old fishing string I had lying around. Here is a before picture so you can get a better idea of the pieces:

What do you think of the piece? After the holiday, we will be installing it at the OCH Art Market space permanently, so make sure to check it out at the December market.

Also, don’t forget to sign up for our First Painting Class on December 8!!!

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…).

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)
