Recap: Paint Party! @ 9:15 PM
Last Friday, September 23rd, was our first Fornax event of the semester! Paint Party was likely the inaugural event of the newly redesigned Altschul Atrium, so we thought it fitting to have some creative time in a creative space. So a little past 7 PM, I was joined by some of my lovely stars, and we got painting right away. Each student was given a canvas strip; one side was to express themselves freely (poetry, quotes, patterns, abstraction, etcetera), and the other side was to have each artist's name and room number.
These strips will be hung around the eight floor hallway like a banner, and the idea is that passersby will notice a piece that they like, find out who the artist is, and seek them out for a conversation! A collective project for a collective effect.
I will put up pictures of the completed banner as soon as everyone paints their piece!
