Sharon Arts to re-launch “Artistas” May 18
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Sharon, NH -- Sharon Arts Center is pleased to announce the re-launch of “Artistas,” an all-women’s artist group, which is scheduled to meet on select Fridays, noon to 1 pm on May 18, June 22, July 20, August 24, September 21, and October 19 at the School of Art & Craft, 457 Rt. 123, Sharon. Continuing dates will be issued at a later time.
The goal of this group is to create a support forum for creative ideas, inspirational conversation, and the sharing of ideas and enthusiasm for local arts venues and events. Topics explored by the informal group include creativity, inspirations, artists, overcoming creative blocks, and more. Artistas is open to women of all ages who study any art form and are interested in chatting with peers. The possible activities include visiting local museums or artistic organizations, sharing artwork for peer review, or discussing books, films, challenges and goals as a modern creative individual. Each month group participants will have the ability to choose from a variety of topics in order to sustain an encouraging environment of their own.
Group organizer Anita Mendes said, “The reason for having supportive, homogenous groups is that its participants are able to explore more deeply their similarities. Their artistic differences can be used to walk the boundary of another person’s art while creating ownership of their own choices. We can use the group’s responsiveness to strengthen our life’s interests, while creating new ways of seeing our craft, skill, and venues.”
The Artistas group met several times in 2011, covering discussion topics on creative expression, various mediums, and the healing power of art.
