Everybody's an Artist
Though I am a late-in-life artist, I have to admit that given my love of words, story, poetry and computers for communication and photos, art has been the natural next step in creatively expressing myself. I believe with all my heart that everyone is an artist. Did you know that Macintosh users have a studio right in their computers?
I belong to the non-profit Redondo Beach Art Group; we meet on the first Wed. of each month, 7 p.m., at the community room in Veterans Park, Catalina between Torrance Blvd. and Pearl. Every year the Redondo Beach Art Group (who meets on the first Wed. of every month at the community room in Veterans Park) hosts their annual art show.
It will be held this year at the AES Power Plant in Redondo Beach, CA 90277, Oct. 17-19, 2008. Go to: http://www.redondobeachartgroup.org/ for further information. The opening reception is Fri., Oct. 17, 7 p.m. Admission is free. Though I guarantee the art, music, and food will be sensational, there is something for everyone including a make-and-take area for kids. Seeing the interior of the power plant is also an incredible experience.
Something else you might enjoy is the Art Group's annual Redondo Beach Creative Studios Tour. It is scheduled for Sat., Sept. 20, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will feature the homes and studios of four local artists. See the website for more information.
Which brings me to my last point:
Anybody interested in a special interest group for creating digital art? I am currently teaching myself to use PhotoShop for collage as well as teaching myself digital scrapbooking. If you are interested, contact me at: email@example.com.
