My last art walk of 2016 would turn out to be my last art walk as an Emporia Art Lofts resident. Long story short, it’s because my boyfriend and I decided to get hitched! Woo! More on that later, but for now I wanted to share how I would typically get ready for an art walk while still having a day job. I’ll definitely come back to visit my Ontario family! It was so much fun to live there, and the community is amazing and so welcoming. To me, it was so inspiring to be around other creatives and it was a unique look into how artists of many, many disciplines live and work. If you live around Ontario, CA, the art walks happen every third Saturday of January, March, June, August & November so please visit and support your local artists.
As I mentioned in the video, I wanted to encourage people to get creative and leave their own mark during the art talk. At first, people would be hesitant but no one can resist drawing on a wall (well, to be fair it was only paper taped to the wall)! I had a couple kids to came back to draw dogs, it was so cute! Below, I’m posting a few I took pictures of that were not in the video.
