A 24-hour fitness club for your Imagination Muscles!
The Create Space - Art Studio for Everyone was founded by Rachel Navaro in Hudson, WI. It is a place where art and creation is accessible to artists of all ages and skill levels at a time that is convenient for them.
The goal of The Create Space is to build a cooperatively shared, member-driven art studio available for use by our members 24-hours a day. Members will have access to supplies like paint, pastels, markers, pencils, brushes, paper and easels, workspace, storage space and support to realize their artistic vision.
The Create Space will also offer youth and adult art classes, summer art camps, after-school art, art focused birthday parties and girls'/guys' night out art awesomeness!
How will your contribution help?
The $10,000 we are trying to raise will all go toward supplies and building materials for the studio. Contributions through Kickstarter will help purchase art tables, stools, markers, lots of construction paper, shelving, lockers, a laptop, power tools for canvas construction, canvas, and paint for a giant "Create" mural. If we raise more money, we will purchase a manual printing press and tools for cutting linoleum prints.
When will you get your wonderful rewards?
The Create Space day passes, individual and family memberships and party passes will be available immediately following the campaign. Art prints will be delivered in July, and your original art should arrive in August. We promise to get everything to you just as soon as we create it!!
Other ways you can help:
Help us get the word out about the new studio in town! It's for you!
Tell your friends, your neighbors and random strangers who sit next to you on the bus! Everyone is welcome at The Create Space.
Also, please stay tuned for our latest classes, events and drop-in hours on our upcoming website: www.thecreatespace.org
Lastly, we love donations! You can donate art supplies or tools to the space anytime!! Do you have a box of crayons, markers, beads, a sewing machine or other art supplies/tools hanging around your house, collecting dust? We would love to put those supplies to good use!! We and lots of kids and adults will thank you and send huge hugs your way too!
Risks and challenges
With a life full of many kinds of work, play and small children, the greatest challenge of this project is finding enough hours to get everything done that I would like to get done in a day - especially since much work happens post-baby bedtime.
Thanks to all the support of family and friends, my excitement about the project and the extensive to-do lists that I make, I am determined to stay on track and make The Create Space an amazing experience for everyone!
