Something magical happens when you put a group of artists in a room together. That's what this project and OC Arts Center is all about!
The "Inside the Artist's Studio" project is the first big event created by OC Arts Center. This event will be a work of art in itself, as we have a team of creative minds putting it together. Throughout the evening, we will highlight our instructors who have had long and interesting careers in visual arts, and give the community a chance to meet these well respected artists. Artwork created by the instructors will be on display, as well as photos that chronicle their careers. We know that when you bring creative people together in a room, something spectacular happens. This event will illustrate that unique energy, which is what our organization is all about.
OC Arts Center is on a mission to build a community art center: A place where artists can come to create, to collaborate, to be inspired by other artists, and to share their talents with the community. The organization was founded in 2010 by myself, Gaylen Corbett, and Virginia Repasky. We both have backgrounds in the arts and in business. I paint in my spare time, when I'm not designing websites for artists. Virginia represents artists on a national level. We want to create a special place for the artists who live in our area, and for the community who can benefit for their talents.
We are really excited about the "Inside the Artist's Studio" project. Our goal is to give the public a glimpse inside the minds of these artists and hear about their creative processes, and the journey that each one of them has been on throughout his or her career. How did they get started? When did they decide to become artists? What have been the highlights of their careers? Would they do it all again?
Funds raised here on Kickstarter will go towards fun things like renting an awesome venue for "Inside the Artist's Studio", printing some truly creative invitations, handcrafted gifts for participants, and marketing the event. It will also go towards some totally boring stuff like obtaining the necessary insurance, security, etc.
The money you donate will be like a seed for OC Arts Center - We will make sure that it grows into something beautiful! For more information, please visit our website http://www.ocartstudio.org
