Last Saturday we had a blast. The first BxArts Factory Block pARTy was a success and we can't wait to repeat it next year. I was live painting together with other 3 great artists. I chose Summer as the theme for the event and I always love seeing what other artists create from the same word or concept: from a "healthy juice" to Nina Simone, Everyone did a great job. Around 200 members of the community participated in the activities, talked to the artists and created amazing pieces of art. I have to find a way to get more community members to come and paint live with us, it is very interesting to see everyone's process when creating. How some people sketch in pencil and then paint everything at the same time, others sketch and then fill each line like if it was a paint by numbers coloring page, or like me, that I jus go ahead and start layering colors until I figure out what to do :)
Art at the Bar was created by BxArts Factory in 2016 as a once a year way to connect with your creative side while enjoying a great time in community. Our monthly Bronx & Crafts events were born from this awesome yearly summer tradition. Join us to pay homage to this fun way to connect! In this DIY style event participants will be painting on mini-canvases, creating inkblots and creating still life drawing.
