Art in an Hour is on track!
This website is making my heart sing. How bizarre is that?! Since it was launched a couple of months ago much has happened, and I’m thrilled with the responses I’ve received.
There are three things I’m so excited about:
The first is, of course, that Art in an Hour is reaching people and apparently moving and inspiring them. We are getting results. That is very exciting for a fledgling business, breaking new ground.
Secondly, that people have found this particular website so accessible and easy to use. That is music to my heart. As a person with weird vision impairment challenges, to know it looks good is magic.
Thirdly I want to acknowledge that it was made by Harry Sanders from StudioHawk, a young man with superb customer service and skills. I highly recommend StudioHawk. www.studiohawk.com.au
Recent Art in an Hour workshops have included a number of community classes in partnership with Vasili’s Garden Check out our Gallery for newly updated photos. We always start at 10.30am and make art for about an hour and a half, drawing (literally) from the masses of plants in the nursery, then have lunch together. Each session is a package deal. www.vasilisgarden.com.au
Another successful partnership workshop in Castlemaine was between Art in an Hour and Restore and Replenish. www.restoreandreplenish.com.au. Art in an Hour kick started the day in a beautiful autumnal back garden, with participants clearing out the cobwebs and stilling that monkey mind, drawing, prior to a workshop designing futures we love. Check out our Gallery for photos.
Most recently, the City of Yarra hosted Art in an Hour to bring together council staff and workers from allied services all committed to working with children and their families. This workshop was held in the Connie Benn Centre in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. We used art to explore a language that all children understand regardless of their cultural background, and one that could easily include their parents in collaborative activities. Please have a look at our Gallery for photos of the artists and some of their beautiful work.
