Create Community is an ecumenical business project that seeks to build local relationships through the arts while providing training and employment opportunities for individuals currently living in poverty. Their goal is to develop and produce well-designed and affordable handmade goods. Caritas currently needs old T-shirts and cloth material, drop off your donations at the Village, thank you.
There were 23 entries, those selected are not only of high quality, but can also be tweaked and fine tuned to produce a variety of products.
Barbara Vann, creator of the "peeps", will be returning soon to Craitas with her amazing and creative talent with Polymer Clay to help us learn to sculpt clay. Bring your clay and join in the fun. Please check back for class dates.
Polymer clay is a type of hardenable modeling clay based on the polymer polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Polymer clay is generally used for making arts and craft items, and is also used in commercial applications to make decorations.
Living Somewhere in America, addresses identity, community, population, economics, social and civil rights in our country. The exhibition combines previous works of art from several past shows to demonstrate changing trends in our society while comparing historical events that not only affect us socially but patriotically.
Living somewhere in America deals with people, places and things that make up our free society. The freedom to live, work and play isn't a right that is shared by all, being able to express concerns and controversy in art is also a freedom as well as a voice.
