SWAN Open Studio Thursdays

Start With Art Nanaimo invites you to come out to play by making art on Open Studio Thursdays from 7 to 9 pm. What about that resolution to put more fun and creativity into your life? Well, SWAN has a deal for you! Open Studio means that you give yourself permission to play and make art. Show up at the studio, turn off your inner critic at the door, and tell yourself you’ll make art no matter what. Come with a creative and open mind and see what happens.

Bring in your own project, if you like, or a sketchbook, pencils and experiment with different materials. Anything goes. Everyone does fun, playful exercises to loosen up and that help put you in the “right” frame of mind. The group is currently painting a mural for the upcoming Art for Wildlife Exhibition at the Nanaimo Art Gallery in March, 2011. Come and put your mark on it! What a great way to spend an evening….all for a minimum donation of $3. These activities take place at Studio 366, 366¬†Selby¬†Street, Nanaimo. Carpe diem Creo! (seize the day to create)
