An Art Center - what do you think?

While I was at the Trash and Treasures sale the past two days I came across this small concrete white rabbit, I had to bring him home with me. More and more folks are approaching me for pottery lessons. Since our driveway is steep and there isn't much parking it could be a problem having classes at my home. Each person could come individually which doesn't make my time very efficient.

I started thinking about forming an art guild and center here in town much like the Helen Art Center that I belong to. The one in Helen is a 45 minute drive from here so that isn't cost effective for me or others to keep driving to. What do you think? I have enough supplies to outfit the clay portion. I was approached by a water color artist about joining in and I'm sure there are other folks who'd be interested.

The folks in Helen have their building rent donated to them. Hum. That's what I'd need to start an art center here, someone who'd be willing to donate the rent on a building. Also other artists willing to donate their time to help run the center. I'll stop in to see the Chamber of Commerce on Monday to see if they know of any options available around here. This might be more work than I am able to do but no harm in exploring the possibilities. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. What a wonderful, generous idea. I have a feeling you will make this happen.
    You need a patron who could use rent donation as a tax write off!
    Love the bunny!

  2. You may have lucked into an idea that is beneficial to all. I'd check it out. Maybe the person who donates the rent could have free art lessons as the patron/patroness.

  3. That's how things start.
    Looks like a step rabbit to me.

  4. You are settling in well. Great idea. Love the white rabbit.

  5. Good luck.
    And make sure you keep that bunny away from others of his kind. Or he will multiply. And multiply.

  6. Hi Suzi, thanks, we shall see if it comes together

    Hi Dennis, thanks, I need some luck ha.

    Hi Rian, thanks, hope it's feasible.

    Hi Joanne, thanks, yes that's a sweet rabbit, hope he brings good luck.

    Hi Barbara, thanks, not sure if I can pull it off but will check into it.

    Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, I'd like him to multiply. ha.

  7. What a great idea! I hope the Art Center works out and we get to hear all about it on your blog.

  8. Hi Khnoum, thanks, not sure I can pull it off but we check into it, hopefully someone else will want to work at it with me.

  9. that could be exciting - let us know how it goes... cute bunny :)
