Free Art Friday

Dolvin artists will be participating in Free Art Friday for the first time on May 10, 2013! This is a worldwide art movement that celebrates the making and public sharing of handmade art objects, emphasizing that art is for everyone. The concept is simple - make a piece of art and display it in a public place (on a Friday) that will be easy for someone to come across - finders keepers! That is, for your first one - after that continue to share the pieces you find by placing them in public spots for others to enjoy. Remember, art pieces should leave no trace when taken - no tape, no signage, etc.

In the next two weeks, we will be producing some small pieces to give away on Fine Arts Night, May 9, and the following day students will display them at school and in the community for people to find and have their day brightened with art. Add to the fun by following Mrs. Knight on Twitter -
to see and post pics of where the art is placed and found. 

Remember to come to Fine Arts Night on May 9 from 5:30-7:30 to get your art piece for 
Free Art Friday...

This is Evereman, a local Free Art Friday artist who taught all of us Fulton county art teachers how to get in on this fun art movement for ourselves and our young artists

Here are some pieces we made at a production party - the abstract faces are called "Evereman" and the portrait is from another local artist, Ms. ATL. Some of these will be hidden around Dolvin on May 10!
