Nude Paper Cuts, Half Off Art, and Guided Open Studio

Tomorrow from 4-6pm is the 2nd reception for "Clothing Optional" at CityArts Cooperative.  To entice you to visit, I am sharing a few more images of my nude paper cuts.

Of course, there are going to be MANY reasons to come to CityArts Cooperative tomorrow.  Tomorrow from 11-6 is the 7th Annual Half Off Art Show.  Over 40 artists are participating, selling their work for 50% off!  The gallery is currently PACKED with art: paintings, drawings, photographs, ceramics, jewelry, prints, paper-cuts, and more.  Get some early holiday shopping in, buy some for yourself, for someone's birthday, or buy just because you love the art!

AND there will be an auction of the art bra's at 5:00 with all the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society!

I have one more exciting announcement: I will be teaching a new class starting in October!

Artists can come and bring art that they are working on, in any medium, and receive advice on technique, concept, and direction.  This class is loosely modeled after my own Junior and Senior Thesis classes from art school.  I won't give assignments because the art for this class is your own.  I will be there to help you grow as an individual artist.

You may feel free to bring in art to work on, or simply bring your art to receive in-depth critiques.

As the class progresses, I would like to encourage other students to give feedback as well.

In the future, I plan on asking other local artists to guest-teach on occasion.

Super-cool, right?

Green Tip #8: Go Outside. In order to take any action towards helping any cause, your first have to care.  Before you can care, you familiarize yourself with the situation.  So I realize it is difficult for some people to care about the natural world when they spend the majority of their time cut off from it, indoors.  So go outside.  Go on a hike through the woods, go to the beach, go swimming in a creek, go canoeing down a river, camp outside amongst the trees, sit on the grass in your own backyard.  I guarantee if you spend enough time immersed in the natural environment, your appreciation and connection will grow.

Thank you for the visit!
