First Friday May 6 2011 at A Creative Art Studio

Join A Creative Art STUDIO for First Friday Denton May 6, 2011, from 7 – 9 pm. Starting at 7 pm Vanessa Helvey and David White will perform in the studio. Vanessa is a singer songwriter who is originally from the Texoma area. David White studied music at the University of North Texas and will be playing madolin and guitar. Vanessa describes her style as Americana/Alternative with a little Country/Folk. Listen to the wonderful music and check out the beautiful art in the gallery.
The studio has recently begun Community art projects during first Friday. The launching of the first community art project resulted in the First Friday patrons of all ages completing a painting. A weaving sculpture was done at the next celebration. Our community project at the May 6th First Friday will be a community collage. The definition of a collage is a work of formal art made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. It may include fabric, papers, portions of other artworks, words, or found objects. The word collage is taken from the French word coller which means to glue. This art form can be traced back many years but has made a reappearance as an art form. What? Not sure how to make a collage? Come find out. Bring your favorite image, paper or saying or select one of ours to add to the artwork. See the work of several Collage or assemblage artists including Scott Wright, Crystal Nelson and Karen Arzamendi. Some artists that have work in the gallery will be demonstrating their medium and fun will be had by all. Come meet with friends and celebrate music and art.
