Creativity in November at Sparks Art Studio – Register for classes now! Plus Africa Beadazzled Art Party
Creativity in November
- Party featuring a Slide Show of photos, Suzanne’s Sketchbook of Africa, Beaded Jewelry, and Safari Stories.
Suzanne Sparks just returned from a month-long visit to Africa. From Ngorongoro Crater to Victoria Falls to the Sarengeti to Karen Blixen’s home (from the movie ‘Out of Africa’), she traveled to visit villages, National Wildlife Parks and five different countries. Suzanne stayed in tent-cabins and tracked wild animals in the ‘bush’. Visiting traditional tribal peoples in their villages and hearing stories of their culture was enlightening. Suzanne returned with her collection of authentic tribal beaded jewelry and textiles. Come and visit while Suzanne shares her adventures. The slide show begins promptly at 10:15. FREE but please call 817-266-3085 to let us know that you are coming. We want to be sure to have enough cookies and punch.

Please call Suzanne at 817-266-3085 with questions and class sign-ups. We hope you will join us at the studio for NEW classes with talented artists and teachers.
I’m home from Africa and ‘nesting’ at home… catching up on emails, finishing my sketchbook, and being calm is the way I recover from a long trip. I’m planning a get-together to share photos, tales of the adventures, and my sketchbook with you.

YOUR VICTORY SPLASH! A HOLISTIC HEALING (VISUAL ART) HAPPENING.
Friday, October 16, 6:30-9:30 pm. The Edge 166 Artspace, 2425 W. Parker Rd., Carrollton TX 75010.
Back in the 1960s there was something called The Happening! It is remembered as a hippie thing, but it was really a revolutionary art thing. No longer did you stare at “art works” at a distance, but you actually took part in the creative process of art-production. We call this process “participatory painterly collaboration,” or PPC for short. You don’t have to be a professional artist necessarily, but you have to be committed to the collaborative moment. So come on out and invite your friends, whether they are artists or not! We can’t tell you everything about it in advance, because it’s…well…a happening. Like October thunderstorms and flash mobs. But it’s not just a lot of skylarking. We’re serious about what we’re doing, and we’re hoping to get to know you in an unconventional way. Bring a food offering if you wish. But don’t hold back your creativity. The event will be hosted and orchestrated by North Dallas artists MissiLou and Sunny.
