Beginnings - August 2014

BEGINNINGS - How do you begin? An Art Salon Discussion

The August Art Salon For Fertile Minds gathering was two evenings rolled into one: Art Salon discussion 
forum and the group art exhibit Q&A time.

We loved talking about BEGINNINGS, the topic of the evening. What inspires us, when we plan it, when we don't, when we're working for our love of art and when we're working for commerce. Many reasons to begin.

But what happens next?  That's what we'll talk about in September.

How to stay creative during the middle process:  the work.  But also, how does play contribute to our creative process? How do we feel about toys and playfulness? How do we stay in touch with our child at play?

Those of us who have opted in on the group art exhibit are especially interested in these ideas.  Once we get started with an idea how do we retain the creative spark and passion that was there in the beginning.

Please join us September 10th for our next gathering.  We would love to meet you and hear about your art making experiences.
We are inspired by the following quote:
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. - Albert Schweitzer
