First of all, HAPPY SPRING! Yay for warmer weather coming our way!
We've had a super busy month in the shop filled with highs and lows. Here are a few highlights;
We tried our first March Break Camp, but unfortunately it didn't run due to low enrollment. HOWEVER, what did happen, was all of you awesome parents let us know what would work better for you. We threw out our week-long camp, and replaced it with drop-in workshops throughout the break instead. And you know what- it was a HUGE success! So again, we want to THANK YOU for your support and patience. We feel so lucky that we have such an awesome community supporting us that gives us the chance to make some mistakes, learn from them and GROW!
We also launched our FILL'ER UP Sketchbook Challenge this month and have over 80 artists ages 6-68 making at least one thing in their sketchbooks everyday. They started on March 12th, and will continue right up to their group exhibition happening April 12-22. A round of applause for the participants please- a sketch a day is no easy feat!
This may seem small to you, but we have to say, the little heatwave that we experienced in the middle of March meant that we were able to keep our door wide open. And that was AWESOME. Our outdoor bench and art-ing plans for the warmer weather are shaping up nicely-can't wait to share it with you!
Oh wait, one more thing... Because of that nice warm weather, and our outdoor planning/scheming, we called the city to ask them to remove the sad abandoned broken bike that has been locked up to the post outside our shop since long before we opened. In a funny turn of events, Miki may or may not have witnessed someone steal said badly broken bike a few days after we called to have it removed...serendipitous, no?
Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely faces in the nicer weather
Heather + Miki
