Arty Things

Last Saturday, I attended a fundraiser for an art school. It was a unique event – pairing food, wine, and art. Unique because the admission/donation went toward unlimited food, wine or beer, and art during the three-hour event.

There were 22 “art stations,” each featuring a local artist. You could visit as many stations as often as you liked, and each one featured a take home art project. I had a blast and the food and drink were delicious. I also learned some new things, such as how to make paper, silk scarf dyeing, and a new (to me) way to make art prints.

Here are my arty things:

I am also still doing my “old” arty things, such as make beads. Here is a sampling of recent beads, some of which will go up on Etsy tomorrow (Wed May 1st).
