ART IN THE PARK: Ready, Get Set, Paint!
It began in the summer of 2012 when a group of free-spirited individuals gathered at the North Hollywood Park, armed with a myriad art materials, musical instruments, creativity and the idea to have fun in our neighborhood park. They called themselves “Art in the Park.”
“We want to create a venue where people can come and freely create art in any form,” says founder Tiffany Anne, herself an art teacher.
Rightly so, every Art in the Park gathering produces not just visual art, but also music, crafts, sculpture, photography, even fashion. The vision is to assemble the greatest number of people, and bond them in creativity and friendship. Their goal is to bring art to the community in a form that hasn’t been seen since the 60s revolution. Free love. Free art. Free jam sessions and Free friends all rolled up in a nice and Free Sunday afternoon. We say: “You can’t beat Fun and you can’t beat Free!”
From simple gatherings for random creations, Art in the Park has come up with themes befitting the season. “We’ve had a barbecue in the summer, and pumpkin carving in the fall,” says Mike Perrenoud, in charge of marketing and media. So you can expect some unique and seasonal events.
This month’s event is “Art Races – Ready, Get Set, Paint!” It is a relay with three teams. Each team member is to paint in details on his/her assigned section of a larger image, under quality control measures. In the end, each team member’s work forms parts of one large artwork. The relay aspect comes in when each member must pass the brush on to the next member after he/she is done.
THIS MONTH’S THEME: “Art Races – Ready, Get Set, Paint!”
WHEN: Sunday, August 18 at 2PM
WHERE: North Hollywood Park – Magnolia and Tujunga, behind the library.
Everyone is welcome at Art in the Park, and it’s totally free. Mark your calendars for the third Sunday of every month for some Free Fun and Art in the Park! If you want to cultivate your creativity, Art in the Park is where it’s at. To get updates and invites to upcoming sessions, like them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/art.in.the.park.love.in.
