Artsy Cartsy is a portable art studio that specializes in process-based art-making using art supplies and recycled material.
After the closure of ahha Tulsa, I wanted to give Tulsa a outlet that empowers people of all ages through creativity. Artsy Cartsy will be available for hire for events and will have various price points for different art activities. There will also be activities tailored to age groups, such as toddlers, kids, teens, adults and older persons. I am also focusing on under-served areas of Tulsa County, as I have been working with these areas for the majority of my career in arts administration.
The philosophy of "Artsy Cartsy" is as follows:
My core belief is that everyone is creative. Never doubt your creativity. Get bored, play, don't focus on the end product. It's about the process. If you just let yourself get creative and play, then you will surprise yourself. Doing this is essential to mental health- you will benefit greatly in your everyday life if you take the time to play.
Artsy Cartsy is made possible in part by a grant from the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition and generous donations
