Last Wednesday evening I had the great privilege of sharing a demonstration with the Calgary Community Painters' Society. Because what I do is often a very solitary and quiet task, it is so nice to be able to discuss the process and the reasons behind it with others, especially others that practice art themselves. I always find the most interesting comments and conversations take place and I am so grateful to be part of it.
It's a busy month, with Junior, Teen & Adult Artists workshops beginning again at the library and live painting at Reign of Power, a theatrical event in support of Airdrie & District Victims Society on September 25. Then during ARTember at the end of the month the library is hosting Metis drummer Denise Miller, Adult Colouring with my good friend Brenda Campbell along with her new colouring book, the Voice & Vision open mic collaboration between the Writers' Group and local artists and finally Culture at the Creek. September is always a busy month which I look forward to with both excitement and trepidation. Over the next few months I will be involved in several events but at least they're not back-to-back which makes me very happy.
