Like many of you, I love to surf the web for cool ideas and fun projects... one of my favourite Toronto artists, Carmi Cimicata, has run a fun Dollar Store Club out of her studio and I, inspired by the work of all the women in this group, thought that would be a FABULOUS thing to introduce at the GSS -- to truly inspire you all to "Go Beyond Scrapbooking" and expand your creative thinking! WHAT FUN!
So... this is how it works.
Every month I will pick an item from the Dollar Store that you will create ART from. Let the piece "talk" to you (smile) and use your imagination and creativity to create something special with it. Bring your completed piece of art to the studio on the FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH anytime between 6pm and 9pm so we can all see what you did with the item, learn from each other and have a few social nibblies too :). I will arrange for either myself or another artist from the community to come in and show us a technique that we can use in future projects. Sound fun?
The monthly club dues are $10 -- includes the munchies, studio time and instruction. CLUB members are also welcome to use the studio for FREE while working on your club project.
To Join the Dollar Store Club - contact Karen at the Studio to let her know you are interested.
