Storytelling Singer/Songwriter comes to A Creative Art STUDIO

Storytelling Singer/Songwriter comes to A Creative Art STUDIO

Singer Songwriter Sam Baker What a perfect weekend to have Sam Baker perform at A Creative Art STUDIO.  It’s the storytelling festival in Denton and this singer-songwriter is a story teller.  Folk Music has played a key role in American History:  carrying the stories from community to community and generation to generation.  Sam blends the traditional enduring folk songs with up to date folk selections from across America, Canada and around the world.  Sam combines rich history, compelling stories and fun music for all ages and he will be performing at A Creative Art STUDIO from 7 – 9 pm.

Art also tells stories, about the artist, the viewer and the world and this month Tina Alvarez will be our featured artist of the month.

Mixed Media piece by Tina Alvarez new“Having worked in Alaska for four summers and traveled extensively in Hawaii and New Zealand, I often see images in some of my art as glacial melt and black sand beaches. But I love for others to use their imagination and let the images speak to them….. I love color and paint intuitively and my creations always surprise me…”  Tina Alvarez
