The Garden Palette
Americans Speak OUT about the Arts in 2018
You may recall that not that long ago, the Art Center hosted a Coffee Convo featuring Aubrey Cash of Dirty Dog Organics. Almost immediately the question arose, “how is gardening related to art?”! Our group quickly responded: “in so many ways.” Thus the idea for the Garden Palette was born. Each month we will explore an aspect of gardening as art. Our inaugural article will explore a definition of art.
Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines art as “something that is created with imagination and skill that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings.”
JOJO’S COSTUME COSPLAY
Americans for the Arts released Americans Speak Out about the Arts in 2018, a national public opinion survey on the arts—and one of the largest ever conducted. This is an update of the study they conducted two years ago.

LCFA & JULY'S 352 CREATE - IN - PLACE
Mandala on Canvas Paint Nite was a gas! Such a brilliant group of women! We will definitely repeat with another design later this year or in early 2019.
Do you know about LCFA's Sip & Craft Parties? They are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:30 PM.
This last July 13th the LCFA teamed up with 352Create and hosted a Create-in-Place for Coffee & Convos. It was such creative FUN!
From their blog - "Do you value creativity in your organization or as an individual? Create in Place is the second Friday of every month and 352Creates is promoting the idea that creativity can happen anytime, anywhere (and it’s good for our health as individuals and as a community)! All you have to do is add #352Creates to your social media posts: make a painting; write a poem; cook a meal; tap your toes; play a song & follow along."
