This project began in late 2018. Inspired by the striking beauty of my friend Karen, and the desire to continue the practice of creating art on a regular basis, this series was born of overwhelming necessity. Weekly, I and a few other artists would meet at my studio to paint from a live model for 3 hours. Together we would create art, talk with our model and grow as artists. The experience I've gained, as an artist and as a person has enriched my life.
ArtAbout is an art concept and business based on sharing knowledge, experience and opportunities for people of all ages to create and or experience art. Started in 1998, ArtAbout was named as the business for mural painting, and teaching. The idea behind the name was based off of an Australian “walkabout”
Definition of walkabout. 1 : a short period of wandering bush life engaged in by an Australian aborigine as an occasional interruption of regular work —often used in the phrase go walkabout.
Rather than wandering out bush in the Australian Outback, at ArtAbout I invite people to experience the joyful vulnerability of creating art, together. ”...as an occasional interruption of regular work”. Classes, Art programs, Portrait and Figure drawing opportunities, Art Camps, and my new favorite, Art field trips.
Stay tuned for events and opportunities for all ages!
