What is art?

What is art?

Is it just me, or is "art" hard to pinpoint? If you had to sit down right now and pen an essay about "What is art?" - could you do it?

"Don't Throw That Out!"

I used love to take things apart, and put them back together in a way more appealing, or interesting to me.  Jewelry, lamps, clocks, etc...  I haven't done this in quite some years, until recently.  I am now remembering how much I love it, and hope to have something I am proud to post here soon.  One piece I am working on now is my "Upside Down" lamp.  I try to use only "recycled" materials, mostly because that is a big part of what makes me enjoy it.  I think that comes from my Father's need… READ MORE

Hi, Donna.

This is the first time ever for me to communicate through a blog. I am exited to join! I do think I need some time to get familiar with this medium. Looking forward to inspire with my art later on and to get inspired from all the members! It is a bit difficult to express fully in english, but feel free to correct me.

First Entry!

It is fantastic to be able to be with the start of the Art Colony.  It comes at a time when I am working to get back into the swing of things with regards to making art.  I am currently take an online course called the Art of Action, intended to help us find the way to "doing", making action happen.  The first steps were to write out goals, and one of mine was to find new ways to connect with the artist world.  

We recently moved from central Indiana to Georgia.  A big change.  In…
