At the Lawrence Arts Center, we know and believe that the most important aspect of our visual arts classes is the sense of community they provide. In our sessions, we strive to inspire each other with our studio work as we meet side by side. Many of us approach our artistic practice as lifelong education, greeting each new studio session as an opportunity to learn not only from the outcomes of our work, but from the making process itself. Serving as staff, instructors, and students, it hasn’t taken long for us to feel the absense in our lives of the social benefits of creating together.
However, as artists we know that limitations are fundamental for innovation, self reflection, new approaches, and exciting alternatives. For many, this shift from physical meeting spaces into virtual engagement has focused our awareness on the importance of the studio as a forum for the exchange of ideas, techniques, and our shared values as a community arts organization.
Beginning this Friday, April 3rd, we invite you to join us for Final Friday, Every Friday, an open weekly exhibiton of community art.
We invite you to submit your work:
