What a week it has been!!
One month ago, Carol sent me an email about a Valentine’s Day project that she wanted to organize for kids and adults. She said,” Julie, if we want this to happen, we need to kick things into gear”. We have the years of experience creating projects for our after-school art clubs. Yet, since the pandemic closed down our classes, we have missed our students and wanted to create a project to connect with our community and offer an experience to anyone looking for a creative outlet. So, with our wheels spinning and art engines revving, we held a brainstorming session and our 8-week Art Club Delivered was created.
It’s been a happy whirlwind of a few weeks! We have registered over 30 participants! From conversations about what supplies to order, researching artist-inspired projects, to corresponding with students, Green Garage Art Studio has been buzzing with good energy. Masked and with the doors wide open, we are making art, writing and photographing the steps of each project and smiling!
Last Wednesday was just awesome! The supplies all arrived. The labels were printed. Our boxes and bags filled! Our families helped get the final details in order, and then just like that…before the snow, in time for Valentine’s Day, Art Club Delivered has made its way to you!!!!
Here are some photos of the launch! We had a great day- a big thank you to our families for their support and encouragement, and here’s to our students, we can’t wait to see what art you create! Please send us photos! And wave to us from your porch when we deliver on Wednesdays!
